Storyline

A story about those who have fallen out of the system. A man who is not homeless, but upwardly mobile as an opinionated radio host, is about to step up to another plateau as a politician. His true nature is good, but his actions are motivated not by his nature, but by needs and wants that a system like ours seduces us with. A system where survival is awarded not to the fittest anymore, but to the cleverest. The downtrodden characters in "Monday Morning" are the hardcore homeless. Hopeless rather than homeless. For writer-director, Nat Christian, "Monday Morning" is when the mechanism of the city wakes up - car horns start honking, water sprinklers start gushing, trucks barrel down the road, workers hose the sidewalks, and the homeless people get out of the way. "Mature subject matter" and "Viewer Discretion" is definitely advised. Written by J. Stein

Hutzpah and art
10 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I heard that passages in Monday Morning turned off some viewers. That some passages were seemingly were off-putting. By themselves, they may be.

When I watched the movie, those same passages came and went, but I was so absorbed in the film that they seemed natural. Monday Morning has the hutzpah to portray the worst part of the homeless situation as it is. Writer-director-producer, Nat Christian, with obvious passion and heart, lays this scenario down right in front of us very effectively.

The story revolves around Thomas Bach, played with intelligence and deliberate restraint by Victor Browne, who is a radio personality in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Bach is summoned to run for the U.S. senate. However, while he visits Los Angeles, CA, his world is rocked and he loses his memory, causing him to wander around the city. He meets up with several characters who will ultimately change how he used to view people on the streets.

Christian serves up a plate of great dialogue, relationships and some humor. Browne leads a cast of excellent and seasoned actors. I definitely recommend!
