Death, masking as a talking parrot, helps Julia Louis-Dreyfus come to terms with an impending loss. Take a look at the Tuesday trailer. 

The death we know from films and TV is usually a lanky fella, with a scythe and a bit of a frown. He means business and that business is death, he’s not a jolly fellow. 

In Daina O. Pusic’s Tuesday, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Lola Petticrew, death takes the form of a parrot. 

Yes, you read that right. 

Take a look at the first Tuesday trailer below. 

It’s going to make us cry, isn’t it? The film looks absolutely heart-wrenching, but it’s also giving us strong A Monster Calls vibes with its fairytale-like, fantasy take on such a serious subject. 

Tuesday was filmed in the UK in 2021 and went on to premiere at Telluride Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival last year and as you can see from the glowing pull quotes in the trailer, people liked it. 

BBC Films, A24 and the BFI funded the film, with additional grants from National Lottery and Cinereach, giving the film a slight aura of prestige already. Tuesday is also Pusic’s feature directorial debut, after two successful short films at Telluride. 

Here’s the official synopsis for Tuesday: “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.”

Arinzé Kene provides the deep, soulful voice of the death parrot and Leah Harvey is also amongst the small but mighty cast as a nurse. 

The film is expected to land in US cinemas this summer and we’re hoping, with all British financing, the UK will get it around the same time. 

We’ll keep you posted on when Tuesday has a release date.
