My Week with Marilyn

Review: My Week with Marilyn

A Joy

I'll admit it - I didn't really know much about Marilyn Monroe before I saw this film. I naively supposed that this film would be somehow, even if just at the end, about her death. But gosh, I was so pleased to see that it wasn't about that at all - but rather, a mere week spent with the loveable main character Colin. I enjoyed the cameo roles from Judi Dench and Emma Watson, but as I'm sure everyone knows, the true star was Michelle Williams. She was just spectacular!! The fragile side of Marilyn in particular was so convincing, and left me thinking about it long after the film had ended. Actually, the whole film left me thinking and reflecting, which is exactly how I like a film to leave me :)
