Michelle Williams Channels Marilyn Monroe in New Movie, My Week with Marilyn

September 5, 2011


Actress Michelle Williams steps into the roll of one of the most iconic women of the 20th century, Marilyn Monroe, and hits it out of the ball park.  My Week With Marilyn, premiering at New York Film Festival October 9th, is based on Collin Clark’s diaires of the same name, chronicling accounts of the author while working as an assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl – staring Marilyn Monroe and Sir Lawrence Olivierin the summer of 1956.

Clark had originally published his diary of his summer on the set of the movie but left out one week, this is the story of that week.  In it, a newly wed Monroe, to playwright Arthur Miller, looking to get away from it all, is introduced to the pleasures of Brish life by the 23-year-old Clarke.

“After seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams,” says Richard Peña, Selection Committee Chair & Program Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Michelle Williams bears an uncanny resemblance to the iconic blond bombshell in the photos released from the movie.  With the Oscar race approaching, word has it that Williams will be a strong contender for a golden statue.  I can’t wait to see the gorgeous retro costumes that showed off Marilyn’s voluptuous figure.  The film will be released in theaters November 4th.
