I am so looking forward to seeing Michelle Williams in the new film My Week with Marilyn. I’m not sure when it opens here in Australia (February 16, I think?) and when it does open, I am going to be the first in line.

I have always been an admirer of Marilyn Monroe, I read everything and anything I could get my hands on over the years.
Set in 1956 and based on a memoir written by Colin Clark, a third assistant director on The Prince and the Showgirl, the movie Marilyn was in London to make along side British thespian Sir Laurence Olivier.
Watch the trailer for the film below:
I have read some interviews with Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh (whom I adore) and it has given me even more incentive to see it because they both seem to be so invested in their respective roles.
Biopics always face a tough audience because they are always going to be judged and scrutinised by die-hard fans. This is the first film about Marilyn to be made in some time, just when you thought there are no tales left to tell…
Personally, I can’t wait.
