When death comes calling for terminally ill teenager Tuesday, it sparks a chain of events that leads mother and daughter on a wild, strange adventure. Julia Louis-Dreyfus shines as Zora, a parent contemplating the unimaginable. She’s perfectly matched by Lola Petticrew’s sparky, heartfelt performance as Tuesday. Together, mother and daughter must confront Death when it arrives in the form of an astonishing talking bird - a scarred macaw, to be precise. This anthropomorphic representation of the ultimate fate serves as a catalyst for intimate conversations between Zora, Tuesday, and the inevitable, leading them towards resilience in unexpected ways. From debut filmmaker Daina O. Pusić, TUESDAY is a heart-rending fairy tale about the echoes of loss and finding resilience in the unexpected, creating a unique portrait of familial life that’s entirely fantastical, yet deeply rooted in lived emotions. Pusić swings for the fences in her daring debut that is reminiscent of fantastical realism seen in the best of Wim Wenders and Hayao Miyazaki. Louis-Dreyfus, best known for her comedic work in SEINFELD and VEEP, delves into a sphere of emotion that she’s never before explored on screen.
