A beautiful and insightful coming-of-age drama from first time director Kate Melville that both acknowledges the tropes of the teen drama but is not bound by them. Tatiana Maslany is revelatory as Claire, a rebellious teen forced to retake her final year of High School; for an actress almost ten years removed from 18, she plays the role with conviction and believability. Although the script at times ventures to some unusual and unwelcome places, ultimately the unpredictability of Picture Day is one of its strengths. An intelligent and sharp witted teen film propelled by an excellent script and brilliant performances.
