The story is average but M. Williams really captures MM and is a pleasure to look at

The first half of this movie didn't do justice to Marilyn at all. I didn't watch the rest.

We seek to embrace that which can never be caught, and pain ourselves with slight touches.

Williams does a passable Marilyn in a movie that's way too cute for its own good.

A visually beautiful film, yet Marilyn's sulkiness distracted from it.
Has made my top 10 list. Michelle Williams was soooo good in role.
My Week with Marilyn is a British drama film directed by Simon Curtis and written by Adrian Hodges. It stars Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Dougray Scott, Judi Dench and Emma Watson. Based on two books by Colin Clark, it depicts the making of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, which starred Marilyn Monroe (Williams) and Laurence Olivier (Branagh). The film focuses on the week in which Monroe spent time being escorted around Britain by Clark (Redmayne), after her husband, Arthur Miller (Scott), left the country.
Principal photography began on 4 October 2010 at Pinewood Studios. Filming took place at Saltwood Castle, White Waltham Airfield and on locations in and around London. Curtis also used the same studio in which Monroe shot The Prince and the Showgirl in 1956. My Week with Marilyn had its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on 9 October 2011 and was shown at the Mill Valley Film Festival two days later. The film was released on 23 November...
