Like most girls her age, 17-year-old Adelaida alternates between intentionally pushing her parents’ buttons and enjoying their affection (such as having mom bring her stuff when she’s too lazy to get out of bed). However, Adelaida’s rebellions over boys and curfews cease to matter after tragedy strikes her family. Without ever getting bogged down in tears or outbursts about grief, This Time Tomorrow deftly explores teenage girlhood and marriage through astutely constructed but low-key situations. Through the film’s disjointed narrative structure, director Lina Rodriguez brilliantly echoes her protagonist’s volatile, capricious emotional state.
