Product description

From Amazon.co.uk

Anyone doubting the layered, nuanced, and heartbreaking acting abilities of Michelle Williams will find My Week with Marilyn a tremendous revelation. And Williams fans will enjoy it even more. In My Week with Marilyn Williams takes on the formidable challenge of playing Marilyn Monroe, and does so with depth and assuredness, and without resorting to caricature. Williams's Marilyn commands the screen with pain and delicacy, and doesn't let go until the final credits. My Week with Marilyn focuses on a small time frame in Monroe's life, right after her marriage to Arthur Miller. Monroe, already "the world's most famous woman," still feels the need for validation as an actress. What better way to achieve that, she believes, than committing to co-starring with Laurence Olivier in The Prince and the Showgirl, a film she firmly believed would finally cement her reputation as a serious actress. My Week with Marilyn is based on the short memoir of Colin Clark, a crew member on The Prince and the Showgirl, who quickly became the confidant of the wildly insecure Monroe and watched a train wreck of egos--mostly Olivier's and Monroe's--collide in a fiery near-disaster. Kenneth Branagh gives an uncharacteristically restrained performance as the exasperated Olivier, resentful of the "new blood" in Hollywood that the young Monroe represents, and disdainful of her cult-like devotion to Method acting. (And of Monroe's chronic tardiness, which threatens to undermine the veddy, veddy strict British work schedule.) Eddie Redmayne plays Clark with a sweet, gentle veneer, someone who grows to care genuinely about the complex Monroe. Julia Ormond is clipped and proper as Olivier's then-wife, Vivien Leigh, and Emma Watson shows a lovely gravitas as Lucy, Monroe's acting coach. But it's Williams who gives the revelatory performance, capturing with painful intensity the insecurity that begins to seep out of Monroe like a fearful sweat. "Excuse my horrible face," she blurts out, while looking nothing less than her usual radiant self. Where does this tragic insecurity come from? My Week with Marilyn doesn't attempt to answer the unanswerable, but instead shines a light on the very real woman who became lost in the giant shadow of legend. --A.T. Hurley --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

I struggled to decide whether to give this 4 or 5 stars - it's not quite worthy of 5, considering that there are the likes of Godfather and Pulp Fiction around, but on the other hand 4 seems somehow less than it deserves. This is indeed a very good movie in all respects. Despite the rather 'low key' storyline (after all, it is about a few people's artistic and personal struggles on and off a film-making set - not exactly the forces of good vs. evil in Middle Earth!) it kept me locked in the whole time. Of all the excellent acting I thought Michelle Williams was especially superb, and managed the enormous challenge of playing Marilyn (only the sexiest, most famous and probably most complex of women!) so well that one can't help wondering why she didn't get the Oscar she was nominated for.

From just seeing snippets of trailers and not really knowing the full story, I was expecting this movie to be something else and be much darker. What I got was a real gem of a movie. The relationship between Colin Clark , the disappointment of the family [Eddie Redmayne] and Marylin Monroe [Michelle Williams who walks and talks like the great lady] is actual quite innocent and looks to be the sort of relationship Marilyn Monroe seemed to have craved - innocent and truthful - but did not seem to get from the movie and media people that surrounded her.

The movie has moments such as when Colin Clark is in the bar with his date and insists to her that he is able to pay his own way in the world - at which moment the waiter comes up and asks if he would like the bill to go on his father's account!

Kenneth Branagh is Lawrence Olivier and his tone of voice is spot on. He even looks like the great man. There is a large cast of talented actors who are equally admirable and who all lend their own sparkle to the film.

I love Marilyn Monroe and was really worried about watching a film about her. I didn't want the actress chosen to not do the beautiful Marilyn. I was pleasantly surprised. Michelle Williams performance was outstanding and by the end of the film I felt like I was watching the real Marilyn :) Also Eddie Redmayne was lovely as usual.
