My Week with Marilyn is a touching story of an innocent affair between a young man named Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) and the legendary sex goddess Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams).  This movie was based on two books that Clark wrote about his work experience on the movie set of the 1957 film “The Prince and The Showgirl  and with the Hollywood film star.  It shows how Colin gets a job working for Sir Laurence Olivier’s (Kenneth Branagh) production company as his third director assistant, and how he and Marilyn become friends for a week.

Michelle Williams gave an awesome performance as Marilyn Monroe who showed her insecurities and demons as an actress.  There were times in the movie when I couldn’t tell if I was watching the actual footage of Marilyn or if it was Michelle.  Also starring in this movie is: Julia Ormond as Vivien Leigh and Emma Watson as Lucy. I really loved this movie.  You can get this movie on DVD and on Blu-Ray at
