1956, London. Colin Clark works on the set of a film starring Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn is also honeymooning with her new husband Arthur Miller, but the combined pressures of work and Hollywood are driving her to exhaustion. Colin decides to take Marilyn to the British countryside during a week.
Taking time out of collaborating American auteurs (Kelly Reichardt, Charlie Kaufman), Michelle Williams led this biopic—turning the daunting task of playing Monroe into a star-making role of her own. She excels as the three-dimensional, multifaceted woman behind and beyond the big-screen icon.
