Noomi Rapace is an incredible actress, but when it comes to one person playing several different sisters, each with distinct personalities, my money will always be on “Orphan Black’s” Tatiana Maslany. Still, maybe Seven Sisters (formerly What Happened to Monday?) can prove me wrong!
Directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Dead Snow), Seven Sisters stars Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close, and Willem Dafoe. Check out the newly released international posters below.
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.
