Love me till Monday follows the story of an English girl trying to find love between the office and her home life. The film looks at how a generation of twenty-somethings go in search of love. They don’t ‘date’, or ‘grab a coffee’, or walk romantically along the Seine in perfectly cut trench coats. They don’t hold tight to a handsome man on the back of a Vespa. They dance ironically in circles, drink far too much and snog a friend. They eat cheesy chips or cold quiche at 3am. It is a film that lies somewhere between Downton and TOWIE, between The City and the countryside, between ASBO and PhD. ‘Love me till Monday’ is a story about a 25 year old middle-middle class English girl and everything she wants and deserves. A film for the funny, ugly and slightly magical English.
