    'My Week With Marilyn' Star Kenneth Branagh On How to Play a Legend

    On paper, casting Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier is akin to casting Kate Hudson as Goldie Hawn: It seems too obvious. As it turns out, the coup was no stunt. In "My Week With Marilyn," Branagh turned in one of his most acclaimed performances to date as his icon. It's more than an uncanny imp...

    NYFF ‘11 Review: A Slight & Superficial 'My Week With Marilyn' Often Resembles A Lifetime Movie

    Marked by an admirable, but certainly not spectacular performance by Michelle Williams -- in a role she's arguably not very suited for -- some wonderful costuming, set design and locations, and a stand-out supporting turn by Judi Dench, there aren't many other favorable things to say about "My Week ...

    'Thor 2' Will Drop Its Hammer On July 26, 2013; Chris Hemsworth Is Back, Kenneth Branagh Is Not

    Say what you will about "Thor" -- and we definitely had a lot to say about the uneven movie -- but audiences seemed to love it.
