Independent auteur Hal Hartley wrote and directed this satirical exercise in what he calls "fake science fiction." In the near future, following a violent overthrow of the American government, the United States has come under the rule of the MMM, a Multi-Media Monopoly which runs the country as a business. Every citizen now has a personal bar code, which is used to monitor his or her consumption of practically everything, including sex, now that aphrodisiacs have become the nation's biggest consumer product. Jack (Bill Sage) and Cecile (Sabrina Lloyd) are two MMM executives who are vying for the same level of advancement within the organization, while William (Leo Fitzpatrick) is a member of the Partisans, a cadre of anti-MMM activists who are attempting to bring down the corporation's rule, though they are regarded as both dangerous and powerless by MMM's leaders. In the midst of this situation comes a beautiful woman from the planet Monday (Tatiana Abracos), who knows about Jack's little secret -- he's a fellow alien hiding out on Earth. The woman has come to Earth to bring Jack back to planet Monday, but given the currently miserable state of Jack's life, he's more interested in having a relationship with her than heading back home. The Girl From Monday has its world premiere at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. Mark Deming, Rovi
New. In Hal Hartley's futuristic film, a being arrives from outer space and takes over the body of an alluring woman (Abracos) to find a friend in grave danger. In the meantime, the planet is in disarray; the creation of the Human Value Reform Act has encouraged men and women to trade on their bodies of relevance. Citizens are now public offerings on the stock exchange; each time they have sex and remain unattached, their value increases. The law's author, Jack Bell (Sage), is overcome with remorse as he witnesses the havoc he's created and goes underground to fix what he has done.
