52 Tuesdays movie rating: green light

52 Tuesdays green light

Compassionate Australian drama about a teenaged girl’s sexual awakening that is complicated by her mother’s transgender transition to manhood. A smart, adventurous film shot in real time, every Tuesday for a year, that takes us on an unusual but still recognizable personal journey of a close-knit parent and child.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
