My Week with Marilyn Reviews:

I attended an advance screening of "My Week With Marilyn," and much to my surprise, was absolutely blown away. I was initially very reluctant to agree Michelle Williams as Marilyn, one of the most pretty and glamorous girls of all time, but she was extraordinary - luminous, even. She pulled off the role seamlessly, and turned Ms. Monroe into a layered, complex character, rather than the sex-kitten caricature we are all so used to seeing. Michelle managed to present us the true Marilyn - the girl who so desperately wanted to be loved, to be accepted, to be nice at her job. The vulnerability, the mannerisms, the voice - all were pitch perfect. I have no doubt there will be yet other Oscar nomination in Michelle Williams' near-future.I was also very impressed by Eddie Redmayne, who's hero was arguably the heart of the film. He was perfect as the star-struck yet sensitive Colin Clark, who helped Marilyn through her very hard time on the set of "The Prince and the Showgirl." This was definitely a star-making turn for Eddie - I expect we'll be seeing much more of him. The film is related in tone to "The King's Speech," and was helped by a pretty score and unbelievable costumes. Director Simon Curtis, who devoted eight years of his life to this project, did a unbelievable job capturing the essence of 1950's England. The wardrobe department deserves a nomination, as do the writers. Kenneth Branagh was magnificent as Laurence Olivier, as was the nice Judi Dench as Dame Sybil.All in all, one of the greatest movies I've seen this year, and definitely the greatest (not to mention most authentic) portrayal of Marilyn ever to hit the silver screen. I couldn't have been more impressed.


MY WEEK WITH MARILYN – CATCH IT ( B+ ) A young Colin Clark remembers the time he has spend with Marilyn Monroe during the filming of "The Prince and the Showgirl". The film is said through the eyes of Colin Clark and how he sees Marilyn and her estrange relationship with the director/actor Laurence Olivier. As the film is only about some of days Colin Clark spends with Marilyn, we don't receive to see the entire drama inside her life but I gotta commend Michelle Williams for her stellar portrayal of Marilyn because it's her performance that takes you deep into the mind of Marilyn rather than the script itself. Michelle Williams's hardcore study on her hero shows in the film and she deserved her Oscar nod. Eddie Redmayne is impressive as everytime but over the years I've noticed that Eddie is everytime nice but never really leaves a powerful impact. I've seen him few films so far but he wasn't that memorable in them. Kenneth Branagh is simply superb. Julia Ormond and Dominic Cooper are alright in their parts. Emma Watson did a decent job out of Hermione, even it was a tiny role but it was defiantly nice to see her spreading outside Harry Potter franchise. Overall, My Week with Marilyn is a nice film and Michelle Williams's performance is worth watching. Highly Recommended! P.S I would love to see Michelle Williams reprise her role as Marilyn Monroe in Marilyn's autobiography if Hollywood decides to create one.


Marilyn Monroe, the quintessential blonde bombshell, came to Pinewood Studios in 1956 to shoot 'The Prince and the Showgirl', a light comedy directed by and starring Laurence Olivier. Colin Clark, the third assistant director on the film, was the lucky 23-year-old who got to spend a week with her. 'My Week with Marilyn' cinematises his diary.I imagine there aren't many characters more hard to enjoy than Monroe. It gotta be like testing Elvis. But I'm delighted to confirm that Michelle Williams makes the impossible look easy. She has thrown herself into this part and has nailed the portrayal. Aside from the physical resemblance, Williams walks, talks and acts like Monroe. It's too early to tell whether she'll victory the Oscar next year, but a nomination seems a certainty. Williams' performance is bolstered by impeccable turns by an enviable roster of the creamiest cream of British talent: Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Zoë Wanamaker, Eddie Redmayne and Emma Watson. Especial mention gotta go to Branagh whose Olivier is impeccable. He accurately displays the legendary actor's sophistication and scurrility, and is bound to obtain a helping Oscar nod. I loved the film's playfulness, for instance when Clark takes Monroe on a tour of Eton, followed by skinny-dipping in a cold river. The filmmakers do well to capture the craziness of Marilyn's globe and the feeling of what it was like to be the most popular girl in the world. There are some lovely tiny touches – like the stage where Clark asks Monroe why she has a picture of Abe Lincoln by her bedside. Her reply, 'I don't know who my true father was, so why not him?'. Eddie Redmayne, who has appeared in some large movies ('The Nice Shepherd', 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age') is well-cast as Colin Clark. Perhaps it's because he looks so much the underdog. He sort of represents each young boy who would have killed to be in his shoes. Clark has his eyes set on Monroe but resigns himself to the fact that Emma Watson's character, a costume assistant, is more his match. A weakness in the story, although I'm unclear of the veracity, is how underused Watson is and how readily she forgives his liaison with Monroe. Didn't women have higher standards in those days?Simon Curtis is yet other Englishman who has moved seamlessly from TV to cinema. His movie astutely plays down the fact that Colin was brother to the even more popular Alan Clark, a former Conservative MP. Rightly so, I think. This movie isn't about the minister or his also-famous diaries. I'm glad the filmmakers didn't sacrifice the film's integrity by moulding it to be rated 12A (British certificate) to increase ticket sales. The two or three flashes of flesh are not only welcome, they are vital (Monroe told that 'the body is meant to be seen'). Curtis teases us like Marilyn was popular for doing. But he knows not to go too far by showing us any more than is necessary. In summary, this is a brilliant biopic, as well as a storyline of what happened when a young boy got close to the star he adored. It is bittersweet and evocative of a golden age of Hollywood. I was made to care for Monroe. I felt terrible for her when she was exploited. Along with Elton John's pretty song, this movie has made me understand Norma Jeane Mortenson a tiny better. Actually I see her as more than a sex symbol. She may have been blonde but she wasn't dumb. Dumb blondes don't read James Joyce or marry Arthur Miller, or come out with some of the wittiest lines a person can utter. She was like all of us, really: a human being.www.moseleyb13.com
