My Week With Marilyn trailer

Directed by Simon Curtis and starring Michelle Williams as the iconic bombshell, the films tells the story in the summer of 1956, Colin Clark works as an assistant on the British set of The Prince and the Showgirl, which stars Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who is also on honeymoon with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller. When Miller leaves the country, Clark introduces Monroe to British life and they spend a week together, during which time she escapes from her Hollywood routine and the pressures of work.

The film will see a November 4th release date and also stars Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Julie Ormond, Dougray Scott, Dominic Cooper and Derek Jacobi.

Many movie pundits are speculating this could land Williams an Oscar nomination. I reserve the right to go there at this time without even seeing the movie, but critics seem to like her a lot and I wouldn't be surprised if she did land a nod or two for her portrayal.

About Me

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
