My Week with Marilyn (2011)

Starring: Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Dominic Cooper, Judi Dench, and Emma Watson.

A supposedly factual biography about Colin Clark, third assistant director and assistant to renowned stage actor Sir Lawrence Olivier in his film debut The Sleeping Prince, who gets intimate during the filming with Marilyn Monroe, who is portrayed as needy, emotional, but sad, charming, and irresistible.

Michelle Williams did very well with Marilyn Monroe's mannerisms, but they don't really look alike, in face or figure. Eddie Redmayne was charming, Branagh and Dench were awesome as usual, and Watson was a nice surprise.

I'm not taken with the movie because it was kind of boring, but it did provide a glance at what Marilyn was like.
