My Week With Marilyn
Certificate 15 99 minutes
Director: Simon Curtis
Starring: Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Julia Ormond, Kenneth Branagh, Pip Torrens
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 famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Aurthur Miller.
Nearly 40 years on, Colin's diary account 'The Prince, The Showgril and Me' was published, but one week was missing. It was published some years later as 'My Week With Marilyn' and this is the story of that week.
Colin introduces Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life: an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe, desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
