Trapped, frustrated and isolated, for one disturbing, slow night these two main characters find that they have more in common than they think. Forced to rummage for research in London's City district for his new screenplay, here, we find human anguish mixed with quiet disbelief. This, a sobering experience of a subject with mixed emotions of her childhood past and future prospects spilling over the precipice of sanity. Haunted by her own personal bogeyman and hidden demons, as the screenwriter is forced to hide in the bedroom cupboard and slowly watch the unraveling of a woman lost, tormented and pained.

Roman: [Talks to himself while practising his chat up line] Excuse me, this is going to sound strange, but, I'm not really not who I make myself out to be. I'm actually a screenwriter doing some research for my new screenplay, you wouldn't happen to be a shallow corporate bitch would you?

Seamless storytelling, tickles the voyeur in all of us. Brilliant!
26 October 1998 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

1998 Sundance Film Festival award winning "Miss Monday" transports us to a state of mind we all want to deny, but need to see. The director, Benson Lee, makes us laugh with some comedy, then slams down a serious and sensitive subject on our heads. This extreme change of emotions is what creates the overall ambience of the movie. The main character is brilliantly acted by Andrea Hart, and sexy James Hicks' Roman is our guide in this movie full of powerful emotions and seamless storytelling. Absolutely brilliant.
