Radio commentator, Thomas Bach, runs for the U.S. Senate in Minnesota. Through a circumstance, he ends up in the middle of L.A.'s brutal homeless community. What he does with his new awareness is pitted against the forces. of security.
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
What can I say? Starts out a bit like a soap opera depicting a view of reality one might associate with the lifestyle of powerful upper class and upper middle class people, but leaves the viewer feeling like they just got to watch a true story that happened in a universe remarkably like our own... or maybe even identical. Anyway, you're going to want to see the sequel. That's what I felt at the end of it, as did the other people I spoke with who saw the screening. So when you get to see this movie, remember this simple chant for when the credits start... SEQEUL! SEQUEL! SEQUEL! SEQUEL! SEQEUL! SEQUEL! SEQEUL! SEQUEL!... Got it? Good!!!
