“My Week with Marilyn”
23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) was determined to break into the film business and his first job was The Prince and The Showgirl. The film was set to be the smash hit of the year, famously uniting the biggest stars of the day, Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh).
On honeymoon in Britain with her new husband, Arthur Miller, Marilyn is excited about the project but quickly becomes desperate to run away from her Hollywood entourage, the pressures of work and the press who hound her.
For Marilyn, Colin is a welcome antidote and he offers her everything she craves when, together, they escape the film set to get closer in an idyllic Britain.
A charming and enjoyable film.
