Short description

My Week with Marilyn


In 1956, Colin, a young man from a good English family, gets his first job in the production company of movie and theatre actor Laurence Olivier, husband of the star of Gone with the Wind, the now aging Vivien Leigh. Colin does a good job and quickly becomes the production assistant for The Prince and the Showgirl, in which Olivier co-stars with Marilyn Monroe. No sooner has filming started than the problems begin: Monroe drives Olivier crazy with her lateness, her lack of self-confidence, her inability to «connect» with her character and her refusal to submit to his charm. As Colin begins to understand that behind the myth of Marilyn Monroe hides a lost soul battered by pills and mental instability, she finds herself drawn to him.

such a wonderful movie, but also very sad to watch - like usually if i watch a docu/bio about (a part of) Marilyn's life. Michelle Williams did a very good innocent & dainty acting...
