Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe: Brilliant!

My Week With Marilyn

If you’re a fan of brilliant performances then you simply cannot miss Michelle Williams turn as legendary bombshell Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn which opens on Wednesday! I saw an advance screening last week and was literally blown away by Ms. Williams’ incredible portrayal of one of the most prolific yet mysterious celebrities of all-time! Set in 1956, it tells the true story (with some liberties) of when Ms. Monroe came to London to shoot The Prince and The Showgirl with Laurence Olivier, where she meet a young man named Colin Clark (an assistant on the film) and the two developed a personal relationship, which was later told in his books The Prince, the Showgirl and Me (1995) and My Week With Marilyn (2000) upon which the film is based. I thought the film was very well done, definitely an interesting peek into the private life of Marilyn, but Michelle Williams totally steals the show, she must be nominated for an Oscar for her work, she truly captured Marilyn’s charisma and vulnerability to a tee!
