This is a great movie! Shot very well and the main actress is amazing for playing all seven characters. This movie itself is a little bloody for me, but besides that I quite like it. I keep seeing reviews indicating a lower rating, but I don't know why! This film is exciting and has a great story line that makes you think about our current situation in the world. It makes you wonder just how far human society will go when technology starts to really become more advanced.

Let me start by saying that I did not expect this movie to play out the way it did. The acting by Noomi Rapace is nothing but phenomenal. The movie does have the basic, typical plot in regards to the whole dystopia and one child policy that has been seen before. However, the notion of the seven sisters working together to survive was what made this storyline unique. Although Noomi played seven roles, each character had the chance of sharing their story and distinctive traits. I definitely recommend this movie. Netflix pulled this movie out of a hat.

It might have been because I hadn't seen a movie in this vein for a while, but it was extremely entertaining! For all its flaws and tropes it's still a very entertaining movie with a huge performance by Noomi Rapace. I would recommend it just for her acting! Oh, and the end; It all comes together very cleanly for the septuplets... storywise, at least, not in the fluffy unicorn parade happy ending you secretly hope for them way.
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.
