POTATO ON THE GO REVIEW (Movie):
Marilyn Monroe. She has captivated... and intrigued the world for decades. And although she has passed away for many years already, the public's interest on her never went away. And this exactly was what I witnessed during the press screening of My Week with Marilyn last February 24 in Greenbelt's My Cinema.
Directed by Simon Curtis and written by Adrian Hodges, the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated My Week with Marilyn is a biographical film based on the books of Colin Clark which depicted the 1957 film The Prince and The Showgirl starring Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). The film focuses on the week when Monroe spent time being escorted around Britain by film apprentice Clark (Eddie Redmayne) after her husband Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott) left the country. The week told in the film is the missing part on Clark's diary The Prince, The Showgirl and Me when it was published. It was however revealed several years after the initial publication.
