My Week with Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe is my favorite actress and has been for years (my favorite actor is Orson Welles, but that's another post).  She glows in every photograph & frame in her films.  When I heard they were making a film about her I was excited, but skeptical that any other actress could play her.  Then I heard it was Michelle Williams.  I don't love her.  I wasn't expecting anything from her.  But yesterday I finally saw the trailer for the movie and I have to admit I am impressed.  I actually think Michelle Williams has done a good job of capturing Marilyn's facial expressions and mannerisms.  I may have to watch this movie now.



  1. when does this movie come out!!! I will see it with you!!! she would be the last person I would think of to play Marilyn!! I am surprised she looks like she pulled it off!

  2. I know! It's a total shock! It comes out November 23. We should definitely see it! I bet it will be at the Broadway.
