Storyline

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) 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. 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. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

A mind-blowing movie that you must see if you like sci-fi and action movies (and even if you don't)
20 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie is by far one of the best I've seen in 2017. I must admit that I thought the story presented in the trailer was cliché, but the movie is mind blowing. I would catalogue it as an action movie, and I usually don't like action movies, but this one in particular, has a very well done story that keeps you immerse in the movie wanting to know more. I read the bad reviews and for what I've seen is people that just watch the superficial and didn't really understand the story and what it wants to transmit, and that's the thing, I had never written a review for a movie, but this one really deserves it, and because I want people to give it a chance and not to avoid watching it because of the bad reviews (that are from people that apparently misunderstood the movie). So I really recommend it, It would keep you entertained and amazed.
