    My Week With Marilyn

    The sad reality that I admitting to here is that I really don't know much about Marilyn Monroe. Here's what I knew before I saw the film.  She died of a drug overdose realtively young.  She sang happy birthday to JFK in the 60s and supposedly had an affair with him.  She seeme...

    LISA ROSMAN: MY WEEK WITH MARILYN pleases while it lasts

    These days, you can scarcely hit a Cineplex without tripping over at least one biopic, a phenomenon I chalk up to the same one that makes reality TV so proliferate: people tend to thrill over the idea that anything really happened, like, ever. But as thrilling as some human lives may be conceptuall...

    A "Marilyn" Smarter Than It Seems

    My Week With Marilyn seems like a terrible idea: one more take on the poor-little Marilyn story, this time with fabulous lookalike Michelle Williams. But this sharp little film is much more than that. The story of one week in 1956, when Monroe and Laurence Olivier were making The Prince and The...

    My Week With Marilyn—movie review

    This film has a different flavor from the usual biopic—and it’s delicious, at least for any diehard movie buff. Imagine stepping into a time machine, traveling back to 1956, and getting to eavesdrop on Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier during the famously troubled production of 'Th...

    Oscar Watch: Which Indie Outsiders Have a Shot at Best Actress?

    Last night I watched Ellen Barkin act her heart out in Sam Levinson's Sundance screenplay-winner "Another Happy Day" (Phase 4, November 18), which is saddled with an unfortunate generic title. At 57, Barkin has been around the block a few times, and while the movie opens with her two y...

    Awards-Emboldened 'My Week With Marilyn' Moves To Thanksgiving Weekend Release

    This writer had a hunch. Even though I didn't care for the Lifetime-movie like qualities of the slight "My Week with Marilyn" -- and let it be said two other Playlisters in attendance felt pretty much the same way -- you could tell some of its MOR crowd-pleasing characteristics would appeal to the s...

    NYFF: Simon Curtis Discusses Recreating Marilyn Monroe For 'My Week With Marilyn'

    “My Week With Marilyn” tells the story of Colin Clark, a third assistant director on the set of “The Prince And The Showgirl” who served as mediator between star Marilyn Monroe and the frustrated cast and crew. However, if you heard it from Clark’s memoirs, published long after Monroe’s passing, the...
