|The filmmakers and star of 52 Tuesdays|
52 Tuesdays isn't garnering the same critical acclaim. (Alright, I wrote that statement before Sophie Hyde won the world cinematic directing award for this movie. I told you Sundance would love this idea.) And I'm OK with that. The idea of filming this movie every Tuesday for 52 weeks seems more like a gimmick than a contribution to the story. In fact, I'm still not sure why it even matters. Even if you chose that as your strategy for creating a movie, I'm not sure I would have made it the title. The process had nothing to do with the story. In fact, I don't think the movie would have been any different if it had been filmed in a few weeks.
Good news: the story is somewhat interesting. It's a story about a women transitioning to be a man. Actually it's the story of a child who has a mom who is transitioning to be a man. Strangely, that doesn't seem to be an issue. I just wish the idea of the movie made the movie better. While the film is a modern story told in a modern way, I wouldn't fork over the price of admission to see this film.
