Love Me till Monday trailer

Love Me till Monday, the fresh and funny British comedy from debut director Justin Hardy, arrives on the BFI Player on Friday 11 July, the same day it’s released in cinemas.

Set to launch the cinema career of star Georgia Maguire, it’s a film that will chime with anyone who has ever been a twentysomething graduate trying to find their way in the world, and discovering that reality refuses to play ball.

Becky, brilliantly portrayed by Maguire, is intelligent, pretty and newly graduated. So why, at the age of 25, while all her friends seem to be living it up or buying wallpaper with their boyfriends, is she working in a dead-end office job, living at home with her mum and sleeping with average-looking men who never call her back?

The producers of Love Me till Monday left university and found England in a recession. Finding no British films in the cinema that remotely seemed to reflect their lived reality, they decided to create something that revealed the suburban dullness of starting life after college.

Gathering a crew of fresh graduates, and securing experienced television director Justin Hardy and actor Tim Plester, they have created a sweet, charming and very British comedy about a young girl trying to be happy. The film had its world premiere at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival.

Love Me till Monday will be available to stream on the BFI Player, on desktop, android devices, iPad and iPhone.
