My Week with Marilyn
In 1956, the legendary Marilyn Monroe went to England to shoot the movie The Prince and the Showgirl in which she was to act alongside Sir Laurence Olivier, who was then considered to be the greatest actor alive. While filming, she allegedly had an affair with Olivier’s third assistant, Colin Clark, who subsequently wrote in much detail about his experiences with the famous actress. In his new film, My Week with Marilyn, which was nominated for two Oscars and won various other awards, director Simon Curtis picks up on Clark’s story but offers us something more: a genuinely heartfelt, thoroughly fascinating look at Marilyn Monroe and her role as a cultural icon.
