My Week with Marilyn
This film, for me, was OUTSTANDING. It brought back alot of memories, for when I first saw THE PRIINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL, I was only 14. The film,at that age, went right over my head. In fact, the only reason to go to this film was to see Marilyn Monre. MY WEEK WITH MARILYN gave me GOOD CHILLS running down my spine and brought TEARS to my eyes during the last half of the film. And, knowing how she left this world forever, when I first heard of her passing on that Summer morning, standiing by a Howard Johnson Restaurant dish-washing machine in Gettysburg, PA, I felt a truly gifted, but terribly troubled star, had only left us all far behind in a glimmering glow of starlight, lasting, for some, our entire lives. This film was an enchantment full of beauty,compassion, truth and LOVE. A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT with an extraordinary cast, within a time capsule of perfect depiction, and a stupendous
performance by Michele Williams as Marilyn.
