  • Monday Morning

    Monday Morning (2012)
    Film (Drama) Actress 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
