The structure of the film, chopped into 52 weeks, adds an interesting element and becomes more engaging the deeper you enter. This structure allows the director to throw in more issues than would a conventional plot. The main themes of love, sex and gender are thus inspected through various angles taking in issues such as independence v emotional bonds. Also, in an unexpected twist: sexuality and legal age - at what age can an individual be allowed to make their own mistakes rather than being told what to do (or being protected for the 'child's' own good); can the law even be an interference?
There is a lot of love in this film, great characters, freedom of spirit and loss of spirit - the latter through the depressed characther of a friend's mum . . . one of the film's successes is how it demonstrates intelligent experimentation and mistakes are fundamental to development, yet, obviously humans try to limit mistakes. This is a very enjoyable and illuminating indie film.
Hyde’s film paints a very authentic picture of a modern (western) family, with its 'chummy’ parent-child relationships and its open, frank attitudes to sexuality. And, even though Billie is experiencing additional complications in her search for clarity, security and (sexual) identity in her own development, causing significant dislocations to her domestic life, Hyde (and writer Matthew Cormack) do get across, in convincing and moving fashion, that she exists in a loving (if somewhat unusual) family environment. The film’s increasing emotional pull derives, in particular, from what are three excellent central performances from Cobham-Hervey as the mercurial daughter, Herbert-Jane as her apprehensive mother and Beau Travis Williams as the (separated) father Tom, all (remarkably) debutant screen actors, along with the rest of Hyde’s cast.
Not a flawless film, but one that can be commended for its sensitive treatment of an unusual subject, some outstandingly naturalistic acting and its innovative stylistic approach.
