Full press release:

New York, NY (October 11, 2011) – The Weinstein Company announced today that MY WEEK WITH MARILYN has been added to the lineup at the Hamptons International Film Festival. This follows the film’s premiere at the New York Film Festival where it played to an enthusiastic audience and garnered a tremendous response. The film will screen on Sunday, October 16th at Guild Hall.

Simon Curtis, director of MY WEEK WITH MARILYN said, “The Hamptons Film Festival is the perfect place to show the film and we were thrilled to receive the invitation.”

"Michelle Williams' performance was a revelation for me,” said David Nugent, Director of Programming. “We are so honored to share this film with the audience of the Hamptons International Film Festival."

In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of "THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL", the film that united Sir Laurence Olivier (Academy Award® nominee, Kenneth Branagh) with Marilyn Monroe (Academy Award® nominee, Michelle Williams), who, whilst shooting, was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Mille (Dougray Scott).

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account “THE PRINCE, THE SHOWGIRL AND ME” was published, but one week was missing, and this is the story of that week: an idyll in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of working. When Arthur Miller makes a brief trip to Paris, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce her to some of the pleasures of British life.

The collision of the two worlds - old England and new Hollywood - is as incongruous as it is delightful. Slowly Marilyn begins to shake off the dark fog of insecurity and fear always hovering around her. She reacts with lovely naturalness to this alien world and as she relaxes she offers Colin fleeting insights into her own background - one of family madness, single-minded ambition and uninhibited sexuality. Simply and without self-pity, she relates the tale of her rise to the top in Hollywood; a story involving abuse of one form or another at the hands of almost every man she has ever known, abuse that has left her with only the thinnest of protective layers.

She is not without her contradictions - everyone wants something from her, but she too is fixated on the life she has chosen and is unable to leave it, even though the pressure is crushing her...
... and yet, for a moment, lost in the English countryside, it seems she might finally escape.
