Picture Day Storyline

Claire Paxton is a rebellious, independent late-teen whose outlook on life is driven largely by her single mother’s self-absorption and alcoholism. Claire is repeating some of her senior-year classes at Toronto’s Arthur Meighen High School in order to graduate, which she decides to do during the school year rather than waste her precious summer in summer school. She has little motivation to attend classes or graduate. Her school year is affected largely by her encounters with two males with who she ends up spending much of her time. The first is Jim, the thirtysomething front man for the funk band The ElastoCitizens, with whom she embarks on a sexual relationship. The second is Henry, a ninth-grade student she used to babysit. Henry is an exceptional student, but is at a stage in his life where he too is starting to quietly rebel against his straight-laced upbringing. Claire acts as his mentor in his coming-of-age, which might change if she knew that Henry has secretly harbored an infatuation with her–one of his many infatuations–since their babysitting days.—Huggo

Picture Day Movie Reviews

Tatiana Maslany, a True Star.

Tatiana Maslany of ‘Orphan Black’ stars as Claire Paxton, a rebellious teen forced to repeat her senior year of high school. She is look down upon as a school outsider with a questionable reputation. She becomes a friend, mentor, and an object of desire to Henry who is also a quiet outsider she used to babysit as a child. On the other hand, she is sexually involved with Jim, the 30-something front man for the funk band, the ElastoCitizens.

This is a coming of age story not just for Henry but also for Claire. They’re both amazing in this great little indie movie, but Tatiana is the one that breaks out as a true movie star. She is both magnetic and vulnerable in this role.

Tatiana must mean “gold” in some language

I was going to skip this movie because it sounded like yet another in a long stream of lame teen movies, but then I saw that Tatiana Maslany was the lead. Based on her stunning performances in Orphan Black, I decided to give it a chance and I’m glad I did.

Both Maslany and Spencer Van Wyck play roles much younger than their actual ages, but they are both completely believable. Their performances raise this otherwise common story into something much better.

Terrific lead performance in a smart coming-of-age story

Now here’s an insightful little teen film that gets the angst of coming- of-age without having to resort to the same old clichés. “Picture Day” from promising first-time filmmaker Kate Melville is a sensitive portrayal concerning a couple of teens going about the daily grind.

The reckless, wannabe rebel Claire (Tatiana Maslany), forced to attend an extra year of high school, befriends the socially awkward Henry; a boy she used to babysit years earlier. Claire is unaware of their history at first, but Henry isn’t, and in fact has never abandoned his long standing, secretly obsessive crush.

“Picture Day” is well written and unpredictable, but it is the terrific work of Maslany (a revelation on TV’s “Orphan Black”) that makes the film succeed. She’s a quirky, natural performer and at 28 somehow plays a high schooler with utter conviction. Her character is flawed, brash, but realistically drawn and we root and sympathize with her. Melville rests a lot on Maslany’s performance to great results.

The plot goes some places that don’t really work, and some scenes are in need of a good trimming, but this is never the less a rarity in the teen genre; one that favors character development, leisurely pacing, and no easy answers.

This is smart, good-natured indie fare with a terrific performance at it’s center. It’s imperfect sure, but memorable and well worth seeking out.
