Ahead of its press and industry debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Industry Selects roster, we’ve got a first look at Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I Tonya) and Denise Gough (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Colette) in Monday, the latest feature film by Greek director Agyris Papadimitropoulos.
Mickey (Sebastian Stan) and Chloe (Denise Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend. The chemistry between them is undeniable. 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 blossom into something more. Argyris Papadimitropoulos’ follow up of the festival sensation Suntan is a fun, sensuous romance about how love gets in the way of life, and life gets in the way of love.
Monday is directed by Agyris Papadimitropoulos from a screenplay produced by himself and co-writer Rob Hayes. It’s one of thirty titles selected by TIFF’s industry and festival programming teams; a full list is available here.
