Even though we are still two months away from finding out whether Emma Stone or Lily Gladstone will take home the Oscar for Best Actress this year, a contender has entered the race for the 2025 title. A24 has just released a trailer for its upcoming film “Tuesday,” a heart-wrenching film about a mother confronting the inevitability of her daughter’s death that stars Emmy Award-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Watch the full “Tuesday” trailer below.

The trailer begins with a moment that captures Louis-Dreyfus’ signature comedic timing: her character tells her daughter that she does in fact know how flirting works by asking her rhetorically, “How do you think you got here?” We see how she cares for her sick child, played by Lola Petticrew, who receives a visit from a fantastical talking bird. Though the girl keeps the creature a secret from her mother for a while, it eventually reveals itself to tell Louis-Dreyfus’ character, “You need to say goodbye to your daughter.”

The tearjerking first footage of this highly-anticipated film by director Daina O. Pusić shows the girl attempting to help her mother process her grief and the fact that “every life ends.” Louis-Dreyfus beautifully pays tribute to mother-daughter relationships as her character admits, “I don’t know what I am without you, who I am without you. I don’t know what the world is without you in it.” A release date is yet to be set by A24.

Louis-Dreyfus is best known for her television roles, of course, but she has been building an enviable film career of late. She has twice teamed up with Nicole Holofcener on films “Enough Said,” which earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination, and “You Hurt My Feelings.” She has also dabbled in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with roles in “Black Widow,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and the upcoming “Thunderbolts,” all as the character Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.
