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

Excellent Scifi Action movie
5 September 2017 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

My first reaction: Arnold's 'Total Recall' meets Dayworld (by Philip José Farmer).

This movie has the pace and scifi feel of the best Arnold Schwarzenegger movies of the 90's. It's a Dystopian World movie where the streets are clean and the government is evil.

Noomi Rapace is marvelous as seven very different sisters. I loved her in the original, subtitled 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,' and I loved her just as much in this movie. (She's not an native English speaking actress, but nevertheless, has NO ACCENT at all.) Granted, as other reviewers have said, nothing is mindblowingly different from other futuristic, dystopian film worlds, but it's done very well.

And it's a Netflix movie! Kudos to them!
