MONDAY follows the story of Mickey (Sebastian Stan) and Chloe (Denise Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, who meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend. When Chloe’s time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend’s passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday.

- "There will be viewers out there who will recoil from these two crazy kids' wild, exhibitionistic carnality, their druggy hedonism and their cavalier attitude toward interior decoration. But anyone else who's ever been in a relationship like this — especially the kind of that starts to feel like a codependent bipolar disorder trapped on a rollercoaster by the end — will painfully relate to MONDAY's sensual, funny and above all honest look at amour fou."

- "The audience brings to this film a set of expectations born from a lifetime of watching romantic fiction. That MONDAY skewers them so pointedly and thoroughly is what makes it such an entertainingly subversive spin on the genre."

- "Papadimitropoulos' dizzying ambivalence in tone and form ambitiously deepens the drama in MONDAY pulling excellent performances from Stan and Gough whose chemistry is critical to the film's allure."
