Product Description

Marilyn Monroe invented her public persona at the expense of concealing a private side known only to her close confidants. Fifty years after her death, her creation still blazes brightly in our cultural imagination, while the creator continues to lurk in the shadows. Drawing on never-before-seen personal papers, diaries and letters, Academy-award nominated director Liz Garbus worked with acclaimed actresses to evoke the multiple aspects of the real Marilyn - passion, ambition, soul-searching, power and fear – in an absorbing and astonishing portrait. These documents, brought to life in this film by some of our contemporary icons and stars, give us a new and revelatory understanding of Monroe, revealing her carefully guarded inner life. Love, Marilyn features Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Jennifer Ehle, Lindsay Lohan, Lili Taylor, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood. Rounding out this portrait, Adrien Brody, Hope Davis, Ben Foster, Paul Giamatti, Janet McTeer, Oliver Platt and David Strathairn bring to life the writings of Billy Wilder, Natasha Lytess, Truman Capote, Gloria Steinem and Norman Mailer, completing the image of this very flesh-and-blood young woman in thrall to ambition, imagination, demons, and fear who, over time, came to embrace life, friendship, and the possibility of her future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tribute to a wonderful person 17 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I felt this film was an extremely thorough "labour of love" which is an affectionate tribute to the whole person behind the 'Star' image. I've read many books about Marilyn and I was pleased to learn even more things about her and her relationships. For example, I wasn't aware that Joe DiMaggio went on holiday with her many years after their divorce (when she was in need of a real friend, someone who wasn't going to use her) and for me, it was touching to see the footage of them on the beach. I knew that he sent roses to the cemetery every week but to see what a good friend he was to her whilst she was alive was quite special for me.
I would have given this 5 stars but I did feel that most of the male actors "over-acted" their lines hence the 4 stars. The actresses were wonderful but they did have Marilyn's words to say!
Definitely for the fan and I am very happy to recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and insightful 13 Mar 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This collaboration of numerous actors such as Jennifer Ehle, Ben Foster, Jeremy Piven, and even Lindsey Lohan, do a brilliant job of relaying letters to and from Marilyn Monroe during her time as a movie star, complete with unseen footage and photos. This movie captures the other side of Marilyn that many are unfamiliar with such as her marital problems, her psych ward visit, and her behind the scenes daily life of horseback riding, fencing, and lifting weights. A true gem for anyone interested in her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 23 Nov 2013
By Fifi
Format:DVD
Lovely film, told for the most part in Marilyn's own words. The world's most famous dizzy blonde was sensitive, intelligent and poetic. Great insight into the mind of a wonderful artist.
