My Week with Marilyn (2011)

Colin Clark, a young man travels to London for his first job; landing the position in film production as Laurence Oliviers' assistant as the actor is filming his new picture, The Prince and the Showgirl, alongside the world's most famous actress, Marilyn Monroe. But being in the movies isn't easy, as Colin soon witnesses; her insecurities about herself and her work take a toll on everyone on set. Despite constant warnings not to, Colin strikes up a friendship with her and soon comes to realize that the Marilyn off screen is much different from her persona on screen. Michelle Williams is absolutely breathtaking to watch, giving a most beautiful performance of one of the world's most iconic sex symbols of all time. Starring Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Dominic Cooper, Eddie Red Mayne, Julia Ormond, Toby Jones, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Dougray Scott 8/10 Rated R
