Mondays in the Sun

Laid-off shipyard workers in a northern Spanish town congregate in a bar, each responding to his plight according to his character. Lino (Jose Angel Egido) forlornly pursues jobs he's too old for while trying to learn computer skills from his son; the blustery Santa (Javier Bardem) indulges in impotent fantasies about emigrating to Australia. Writer-director Fernando Leon de Aranoa resists blaming the shipyard bosses in this 2002 drama, suggesting that the men are partially responsible for their own fates. In Spanish with subtitles. 114 min.
