No matter what kind of person you were close with, this film is closer to us than 500DOS was. If only Mark Web directed it.
.....the character described a poor lonely and totally left me a love-hateable feeling, a fragile yet lovable. beautiful loneliness. i just watched that.
Michelle Williams is EVERYTHING in this. The movie, however, is a puffball, completely unworthy of her great performance (and Branagh's). Enjoyable, but really a nothing.
Almost everything was in place for My Week With Marilyn (great direction and performances -- especially from Michelle Williams) but the story floundered through the third act and mistakenly thought it could get to the credits by sliding its hand up the thigh of Marilyn Monroe's larger-than-life persona. Its definitely worth the watch, but its more of a performance showcase than a well-told story. Nice try though...
Forgive me as i am not too sure whether this is accurate as i am aware the story causes some debates. Even so i found the performances compelling and was genuinely surprised by how much i enjoyed this film. Worth the watch indeed.
I really liked the piano theme.
Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
My Week With Marylin was not an excelent movie. But Michelle Williams gives one of her best performance on screen as wonderful and poignant Monroe without imitating it.
Toccante dichiarazione d'amore per il cinema, pienamente al (grandioso) livello degli analoghi Hugo e The Artist; l'interpretazione di Michelle Williams è da libri di storia, semplicemente divina.
Don't you think THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL should be listed as a "Related Film"?
que figura apaixonante a marilyn de michelle.... envolvente e tocante...
Michelle is awesome as Marilyn, and this is the better it gets, sadly.
williams is very good, but not more than that. the overall production is good but the story falls short when compared to that portrayed in the excellent book it is based on.
I almost humped Merlyn Monroe when I was a young lad, does not make an appealing story. And if it weren't for the radiance of Michelle Williams and her ability to convince in equal measures as both the persona that cameras and public loved so much as well as the fragile and insecure woman she was in her private moments, this would be a real disappointing piece altogether.
It seems that the aim of the film was to make Marilyn a cuddly little nymph for young Colin's pleasure. I thought the performances were mediocre at best. Branagh is no Sir Laurence Olivier.
A nuanced exploration of fame and movie-making, dominated by Michelle Williams' excellent portrayal of a lost little girl pretending to be film star pretending to be a lost little girl.
