What Happened To Monday? (2017)
AKA, Seven Sisters
In the not so distant future, the world population has reached breaking point with a number that isn’t able to be provided for in terms of food and water. A one child per family policy is enacted… If a family is found to have had more than one child, that child is frozen and place in cryosleep.
One woman after consuming the modified food created in an attempt to help give sustinance to everyone, has 7 children, all girls all during the same pregnancy. The mother dies in childbirth and the father isn’t known so the children’s grandfather takes care of them. For 30 years the girls named Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday hide their siblinghood, each taking the day of their namesake to live their lives under the name Karen Settman…Their mother’s name. This worked well until one of the girls, Monday goes missing, leaving her 6 sisters to find out what happened to her.
Interesting film, really enjoyable. I had it sussed almost from the beginning though. One thing I’ve noticed about films set in “the not so distant future”, the government and/or general lives of the population are never good.
Still, 7 Noomis.
