What Happened to Monday | KT Review

Not a Series but a Movie

When I first heard about What Happened to Monday I thought it was a series. But as it turns out it’s a 2 hour movie on Netflix. 

Starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays all seven of the sistersGlenn Close (The Girl with all the Gifts, Guardians of the Galaxy), and Willem Dafoe (John Wick, The Great Wall). And Directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters). 

What Happened to Monday is set in a world where families are only allowed to have one child. Any siblings must be handed over to the government for cryogenic freezing until a better time. Overpopulation and hunger plague the world and this is the solution. But one man raises his seven grandaughters in a small apartment, teaching them to work together to be one person when out in public. Each girl can only go out on the day that is the same as her name.

Not what I expected

What Happened to Monday was not what I expected, but then I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Seven sisters all pretending to be one woman, but each with a different personality, just so none of them have to be cryo-frozen by the government because of the no sibling policy. 

There were occasions where I wondered why they were doing what they were doing. And others when I felt like I didn’t totally understand the rules of the world the movie was set in.

It was pretty fast paced once it got going. Confusion was inevitable with seven identical sisters – baring the different hairstyles. And there were definitely times when I wasn’t sure who was who. It was interesting how once they realised one of them had been taken they still stuck to the only one sister out in the real world at a time policy.

What Happened to Monday Review Conclusion

I might watch it again – The story took a little setting up and I wasn’t sure I had all the info when the action started. But once it got going it really got going. What Happened to Monday is a movie you have to pay attention to but worth the time spent doing that. It may have been better as a series.

3.5 stars
