Movie Info

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic "One Child Policy," seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home...

Critic Reviews for What Happened to Monday

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

The film isn't as provocative as it means to be, but it gets a lot of juice from Rapace's multifaceted performance and an "anything goes" approach to plot.

The disappointment of what What Happened to Monday could have been dogs this movie as it navigates safe, predictable roads through an unsurprising twist to a preordained ending.

August 17, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

[Rapace] gives seven performances; at least four are good. It's an audition for smarter roles than Hollywood's been giving her, maybe. Or maybe it's a wigstore-raiding lark.

August 17, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

[Noomi Rapace] manages to turn a derivative sci-fi movie into something slightly more exciting.

The star is up for the challenge, but the high concept quickly unravels.

August 9, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a whirlygig of inanely convoluted plotting, deeply dubious philosophy and shots of Noomi Rapace sliding glasses across tables to herself. You should probably watch it.
