‘Tuesday’ Trailer: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Confronts Death In The Form Of A Talking Parrot

It didn’t take long for A24 to establish a reputation for working with filmmakers with unique cinematic vision. They might’ve found the next great directorial voice in Daina O. Pusić, whose new film Tuesday is a fairy tale about love and death that looks like nothing else out there.

Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Lola Petticrew, the film centers on a mother and her ailing teenage daughter, forced to confront the reality of death when a mysterious talking parrot arrives.

Pusic made her directorial debut on the film and also wrote the script. Tuesday premiered at Telluride last year, and at BFI London Film Festival.

Petticrew is an Irish actress and still a relative unknown here in the States. She recently had a role in the critically acclaimed film She Said, and is a regular on the BBC series Bloodlands.

Also in the cast are Leah Harvey, Arinzé Kene, Ellie James, Taru Devani, Jay Simpson, David Sibley, and Nathan Amzi.

Here’s the synopsis: A mother and her teenage daughter must confront Death when it arrives in the form of an astonishing talking bird. From debut filmmaker Daina O. Pusić, Tuesday is a heart-rending fairy tale about the echoes of loss and finding resilience in the unexpected.

A24 will release Tuesday in theaters later this year.
