smndvdcl's rating of the film My Week with Marilyn

Fleeting moments, that sense of being on the fringes of stardom, starry-eyed, grabbing fragments of fame like a sycophant, hoping to hold on to something eternal, yet finding emptiness. An underrated account of a low-level operator in the film industry having a one-week, erotic encounter with Marilyn, sharing some brief experiences that guarantee a broken heart for life. Williams astounds, Branagh's Olivier, superb.
