My Week with Marilyn - Marilyn Monroe film starring Michelle Williams
'My Week with Marilyn', directed by Simon Curtis, was one of our all-time fave films from 2011.
This unique and ever-so glamorous biopic accurately takes us behind the scenes of 'The Prince and the Showgirl' and tells the story of Colin Clark, an assistant who gets seduced by an emotionally distressed Marilyn Monroe.
At the time, taken for a fool by her partner and treated as capricious by Arthur Miller (her husband), Marilyn tried to make up for her unhappiness in the arms of a young man. This week-long adventure, subtly fictionalized by the director, just fuels Marilyn's femme fatale image even more.
Actress Michelle Williams earned a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Marilyn. Bravo!
