Understanding a Complicated Character -- MY WEEK WITH MARILYN Movie Review


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.

  1. I am a big fan of Marilyn Monroe, she was a beautiful woman and I am sure she was complicated, like a lot of women are. One of my favorite quotes of Marilyn is “Beneath the makeup and behind the smile, I’m just a girl who wishes for the world.” I am sure a lot of females admire her. No one really knows the true Marilyn and this movie looks great. A forbidden romance through the eyes of someone who got a glimpse to catch the real her, extraordinary. No wonder why Michelle got an Oscar, she deserved it. When I get off work from my job at DISH, I’m going to go home and watch it. I ordered it using Blockbuster @Home and it already arrived in the mail. Blockbuster @Home is pretty nifty for my movie watching needs, I can even stream tons of movies to my TV.
