Tuesday made its first appearance at the 50th Telluride Film Festival on September 1st and is set to be released in theaters this summer.
In the film, Julia Louis-Dreyfus portrays a devoted and compassionate mother to her teenage daughter, played by Lola Petticrew, who is sadly very sick. The movie shows the strong connection between the mother and daughter, who face their difficult situation with positivity and a sense of humor, even though they are aware of the daughter’s limited time.
The story takes a turn when the daughter meets death in an unusual form – a talking bird. This encounter leads the mother to come to terms with the short time she has left with her daughter. The film is a touching drama that explores themes of loss, strength, and finding hope in unexpected places.
Arinzé Kene, a well-known British actor and playwright, is also part of the cast.
Tuesday is directed and written by Daina O. Pusić, a filmmaker based in London. This is her first full-length film, but she’s not new to the industry. Her short film “The Beast” was shown at the Telluride Film Festival in 2015, and her comedy short “Rhonna & Donna” won several awards after its debut at the same festival in 2016.
The movie is produced by several companies, including A24, with Ivana MacKinnon from Wild Swim Films, Helen Gladders from Gingerbread Pictures, and Oliver Roskill from Record Player Films. Anna Meredith composed the music for the film.
