At the center of Monday is the evergreen question, can love and life coexist harmoniously? Following a whirlwind weekend, where Mickey (Sebastian Stan) and Chloe (Denise Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, meet and quickly bone on a beach, Monday asks what happens after the hint of happily ever after. For Chloe, this means giving up a job back home, and for Mickey, it means navigating how his new love interest and son will coexist. The pressure seems exceptionally high, but in reality, it’s pretty run-of-the-mill. That’s the beauty of Argyris Papadimitropoulos’s follow-up to Suntan; it’s a movie that accurately reflects the highs and lows of relationships once the dust of a fling starts to settle and the work begins. It’s a reality slap caught on camera that makes Mickey and Chloe’s relationship more endearing than any overly romanticized version of the events could.
