Synopsis


My Week With Marilyn
Based on the famously missing chapter in Colin Clark's memoir The Prince, the Showgirl and Me, My Week With Marilyn reveals the enchanted week that the then-lowly production assistant spent with the most famous celebrity of the era during the production of the classic 1957 comedy romance The Prince and the Showgirl. The year was 1956. Colin Clark was an ambitious 23-year-old determined to make a name for himself in film. As summer gets underway, Clark manages to land a position as a production assistant on the film The Prince and the Showgirl, starring Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). Monroe had just gotten married to playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott), and the newlyweds were on their honeymoon as production got underway. Later, when Miller leaves, young Clark seizes the opportunity to befriend the platinum blonde beauty, and give her a taste of everyday life in England -- far away from the bright lights of Hollywood and the suffocating pressures of fame. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    It starts off slow, stays slow, and ends slow. If it were not a little bit of history, it would be boring. This will probably not be one that will get watched. It will be lent out and forgotten about! Or better yet left at a vaction house for their video collection.

    I loved every minute of this movie. As a Marilyn fan since "Some Like it Hot", I wondered if it was going to be a kiss and tell story. It is a moving tribute to a lady who left this world too soon.

    Over 50 years after her death, Marilyn Monroe remains the epitome of the misunderstood movie star. Here is an entertaining movie that capitalizes on her reputation.
