The luminous Michelle Williams goes bone-deep here. Monroe's beauty was one of a kind. No one, not even Williams, can act it. What Williams does, with fierce artistry and feeling, is illuminate Monroe's insights and insecurities about herself at the height of her fame. show more
When bad movies happen to good people, the first place to look for an explanation is the basic idea. That certainly applies to My Week With Marilyn, a dubious idea done in by Adrian Hodges's shallow script and Simon Curtis's clumsy direction. show more
Williams never defaults to mimicry. Her Monroe doesn't have the breathless whisper and quivering lips/quivering hips quality of the Marilyn impersonators. Her Monroe is a lightbulb on a dimmer, suddenly bright, and just as suddenly, indistinct. show more
Pretty good movie. Acting was done well.
Michelle Williams deserves all the recognition she has received for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. The movie itself is only so-so, with lots of glaring inaccuracies, but Ms. Williams\" performance is steller and sure to be Oscar nominated.
outstanding flick, michelle is dreamy and the supporting cast is outstanding. go see it.
