Robert Regan's rating of the film My Week with Marilyn

I didn't expect this to be a good movie, but it is. I did expect Michelle Williams to be excellent, and she is. Also excellent in a smaller but equally impossible part as another great star and fragile person is Julia Ormond. At the time of this story, Vivien Leigh had but eleven more years to live. Marilyn Monroe had six.
