Must See Movie: My Week With Marilyn

I’m always fascinated by stories of stars from old Hollywood. One story that never ceases to amaze me is the story of Marilyn Monroe. A woman that knew how to turn it on when she needed to, yet yearned to someone…hell anyone to love her for her. “My Week With Marilyn”  is a great telling of the very intimate time spent between Colin Clark, an employee of Sir Laurence Olivier. The story is based on a true story and book of the same name is spun around the production of The Prince and the Showgirl. Beautiful, poignant, and Oscar worthy is the best way I can sum up this feature. Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, and Kenneth Branagh all give amazing performances. This is one film you don’t want to pass up this holiday season.
