My Week with Marilyn Synopsis

In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’. The film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Aurthur Miller (Dougray Scott).

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account The Prince, the Showgirl and Me was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.

'm not a huge fan of My Week With Marilyn overall-- it participates in the myth-making surround Marilyn Monroe even when it claims to dismantle it, and it's a shockingly shallow story overall-- but Williams is the best thing in it, and they're wise to showcase her in all the clips...

THR notes that much like Marilyn, the film will zero in on a brief, six-month stint in Kelly’s life where, in 1962, she’d left Hollywood and assumed a political position in Monaco and had to work behind the scenes to avoid a potential coup. With the ball rolling on a Kelly biopic, now we’re excited to see who’s hired to direct the feature, and who’ll be cast in the sure-to-be-coveted leading role. ...

We've all seen the images by now. In Simon Curtis' My Week With Marilyn, Michelle Williams plays the legendary Marilyn Monroe and by the look of the stills she has nailed the appearance side of things. But what about her physicality? What about the voice? Even though the film is due on shortly, set to bow on November 4th, neither a trailer nor a clip has been released. That is, until today....

Unlike the ethereal close-up shot released while the movie was still in production, this is Williams playing a version of Monroe who is guarded and hounded by the public, a side of her that may be more important to My Week With Marilyn than the onscreen sexpot. That's the part of Monroe I think the quiet, thoughtful Williams can nail...
