Winner of 5 Goya Awards (including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Lead Actor), Mondays in the Sun follows a group of shipbuilders laid off after the closure of the shipyards in Northern Spain. Faced with the frustration of unemployment, the men seek solace amongst each other and spend much time at the local bar. Writer/director Fernando León de Aranoa presents a vivid portrait of economic turbulence and masculine frustration, led by a strong performance from Javier Bardem.
