Best of 2011: “My Week with Marilyn”
I liked this film for many reasons chief of which is because I had a similar experience with an older woman. Expertly cast which was ideal for this little known story about a young man who gets to nearly have his way with none other than Marilyn Monroe for a week.
Michelle Williams was a good choice to play Marilyn. She more embodied the spirit of the afore mentioned than actually looking like her.
I recently viewed The Prince and The Showgirl and was really bored by it but this film about the making of that film was far more enrapturing because of all the intricacies in making even not so good films.
Be on the lookout for Eddie Redmayne who was perfect for the woe begotten chosen of the ultimate female.
