(Australia; 2013; 109 min.)
Director: Sophie Hyde
This smart and thoughtful film is the warm story of how a girl grows up after her mother makes a decision that will change both their lives forever.

Tilda Cobham-Hervey gives a striking performance as 16-year-old Billie, who is just starting to explore her budding sexuality when her lesbian mother announces that she will undergo gender reassignment surgery and that, during the year-long process, they will only see each other every Tuesday afternoon. Left largely to her own devices, Billie begins to navigate the world of intimacy and relationships.

This film won praise at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. James: Del Herbert-Jane. Harry: Marlo Spate.
