My Week With Marilyn
Loved loved loved it. It's a true story - and a simple one at that, made not quite so simple with the inclusion of a week with Marilyn Monroe. Michelle Williams was absolutely stunning as Marilyn, and the rest of the cast was brilliant in their own way as well. I feel like I got an insider's peek into Marilyn Monroe's head and heart, she was so beautiful yet so sad. Everyone was using her for something. It really showed how wonderfully intoxicating she could be one moment, then utterly depressed the next. And I thought it was a fascinating look at not only Marilyn, but also at the society and their feelings about her. Women were jealous, men were intrigued (in more ways than one!) and even those close to her expected things out of her she couldn't necessarily give. It was a beautiful movie that leaves you wanting more. CHECK IT OUT! And give Michelle Williams an Academy Award!
