Movie Info

Thomas Bach (Victor Brown) is on top of his game. A popular right-wing radio talk-show host in Minneapolis and a hero of the Tea Party Movement, he is handpicked to run for the U.S. Senate. But first he must fly to Los Angeles and clean up some dirty laundry that might damage his campaign. A victim of an attack, Thomas wakes up on the streets of Los Angeles without his memory and unaware that he is a diabetic. Wandering skid row, he inevitably blends in with the homeless population and, without medication, becomes more and more ill. As he experiences both the violence and hardship as well as the courage and humanity of the homeless community, a more compassionate Thomas Bach emerges. Upon regaining his memory a week later, Thomas returns home, a hero of the media, with a great story for the campaign. But with experiences that conflict with his political rhetoric, he now faces a choice between career and conscience. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Monday Morning

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Movies don't come much worse than "Monday Morning," a rambling, incoherent, ineptly assembled mess...

Unpredictable, intriguing and unflinching, but somewhat uneven, heavy-handed and fails to pack a strong sociopolitical punch.

Audience Reviews for Monday Morning


When will independent filmmakers understand that formulaic film style can only spoil the non-traditional subject matter of their films? Especially when that style is copied ineptly.

Just saw this again. Assuming that the distributor has allowed it for streaming, although it is "not rated." I was not offended by some of the questionable scenes. I guess that is way it is not rated. There is an unique filmmaker perspective within this process. Twists every bit along the way, yet cohesive so that it delivered an emotional punch. Makes you think.

Monday Morning is an original potion of styles which effectively portrays eye opening scenes that accurately reflect our homeless conditions. I felt that the direction lured us into this world and gives us sobering surprises along the way. This director's voice is something to keep an eye on. The actors were real. Gritty. And I kept thinking how they looked like they were pulled off the street. The movie depicts the journey of an up and coming senate candidate who has the misfortune (or good fortune depending on how you look at it) of becoming homeless while he is in need of his diabetic insulin. He meets a composite of homeless people and develops better understanding. In some of the scenes he's sitting with a bunch of the truly despondent and everyone rattles off opinions and thoughts that are seemingly disconnected, but as the movie unfolds their voices ring truisms. The director creates something cohesive out of all what seems crazy out there on our cold winter streets. I can't say much more, only that Monday Morning stands out amongst the independents.
