Conclusion: Having waited over two years for this to be released in cinemas, I had high expectations. I was not let down. This film is beautifully scripted, directed and filmed and the acting is faultless. Michelle Williams is captivating as Ms Monroe, and surely deserves an Oscar for her performance. She obviously spent a lot of time researching this role. The supporting actors are brilliant too. To hardcore Marilyn fans, this is a delight.
Michelle shines.........the rest of the film less so.

Conclusion: Based upon the two books written by Colin Clark about his time spent as an assistant on the set in 1956 of 'The Prince and The Showgirl' this is the story of his week with the beguiling and beautiful Marilyn Monroe.
Conclusion: Wonderful film based on Colin Clarks two diaries...Michelle Williams is breathtaking, almost spooky at times to look at her & yet hear & see Marilyn. But this is no parody or copycat mimic, this is a beautiful, intuitive & haunting portrait at Marilyn at her most vulnerable, just before she starts filming Some Like It Hot. Treat yourself to this gem...no great Shakesperean Branagh & co British tour de force, but a gem nevertheless, Marilyn would have loved it!
Conclusion: Highlight for me was the cast. Great acting all round, but the winners for me were Michelle Williams, as her take on Marilyn is both brave and brilliant and also Eddie Redmayne, who is wonderful as the innocent but charming Colin. Well worth a watch.
Conclusion: A thoroughly well made and presented film, spot on with accuracy of the period. Marilyn was such a character and made the film. I am temped to get the Prince and the Showgirl as I have never seen it. Top marks.
Conclusion: *A film based on the books by Colin Clark and the time he spent working with Marilyn. Colin leaves home to pursue a career in Television and Film and his persistence earns him a job with a film company. One of his jobs is working on a film set with Marilyn Monroe. *Due to having no real knowledge of Marilyn Monroe I decided to give this a watch. It provided a valuable insight to one of the most iconic figures in show business.
Summary: Inhalt Bei den Dreharbeiten zum Kinofilm "Der Prinz und die Tänzerin" (1957) sucht die Hauptdarstellerin Marilyn Monroe die Nähe des dritten Regieassistenten. Für den unerfahrenen jungen Mann werden die Wochen mit dem Star zum Höhepunkt seines Lebens. Der Film entwickelt eine Anekdote aus einer weit größeren Geschichte als zarte, optisch helle Liebesgeschichte, die freilich die Schattenseiten von Monroes Leben nicht ausspart.
Summary: Wer war Marilyn Monroe, das Idol von Millionen?: Michelle Williams bekam den Golden Globe Award als Beste Hauptdarstellerin in einer Komödie/Musical und hat natürlich auch die Oscar Nominierung bekommen, aber wer war die süße Marilyn nun wirklich? Geboren am 1.6.1926, gestorben am 5.8.1962, durch Tabletten, oder durch andere Dinge die man nicht weiß. Geboren als Norma Jeane Mortenson, hat sie dann den Namen geändert.
