What People Are Saying

“… while there’s plenty of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, none tips Picture Day into mindless sensation or Hangover-style improbability. Moreover, it’s superbly cast, especially Regina-born Tatiana Maslany, who plays Claire as an affecting bundle of toughness and vulnerability, wrongheadedness and smarts, appetite and world-wariness, awkwardness and sensuality.” James Adams, The Globe and Mail




“One of the most charming and vibrant debut features by a Canadian filmmaker in recent memory.” Steve Gravestock, TIFF programmer




“Hard-wired with an appealing punk-rock sensibility.” David Nusair, ReelFilmReview




“Engaging, funny and evokes all the beautiful awkwardness and confidence of being a teenager … Kate Melville has tapped into something very funny, real, and uniquely female … Tatiana Maslany absolutely steals the film as Claire … One of the best teen films this country’s ever produced.” Katarina Gligorijevic, Toronto Film Scene




“You care about the characters in this engaging film … ” Susan G. Cole, Now Magazine




“A lovely performance from Tatiana Maslany as the vivid Claire.” Globe and Mail




“A solid, well shot film, at times gritty and sometimes tender … A realistic portrayal of that awkward period in our lives we all face … Great indie soundtrack.” Filmoria




“A remarkable production … This is a brilliant, simple and rewarding film … Melville has done everything right from start to finish.” Adnan Mohamedbhai, ArtScene




“Maslany is terrific as the world-weary, smart-talking teen … ” Linda Barnard, Toronto Star




“… one of the smartest movies on youth I have seen since “Freaks & Geeks.” Jason Whyte, efilmcritic




“… fearless, honest, unapologetic, heartbreaking, and hilarious … soulful, heartfelt, raw, intelligent, profoundly human and so much fun.” Borsos Jury, Whistler Film Festival




“Caught between coming of age and a hard place, Claire just might be Toronto’s female answer to Holden Caulfield.” Ava Baccari, ELLE Canada




“An authentic look at teenage girl’s life in flux, Picture Day is a leap away from your typical fluffy Hollywood high school drama.”Laura deCarufel, Hardly Magazine




“As played by Tatiana Maslany, we’re introduced to a fresh new female protagonist who’s vulnerable, but nobody’s fool — sexy, but hardly existing to capture the attention of men.” Ben Kaplan, National Post




“Smartly written and directed by Kate Melville, Picture Day is a well-executed coming-of-age drama that distinguishes itself with its strong sense of its characters and their emotional universe.” Adam Cook, Filmmaker Magazine




“Sassy, smart, biting, unpredictable, charming and a story about … well … growing up … charming and vibrant debut feature from writer-director Kate Melville… ultimately, the ending is perfect … so is the title of this film about high school … Picture Day is raunchy roller-coaster…but in the good way … I am really looking forward to seeing Melville’s next film.” Kindah Mardam Bey, Press+
