Movies: My Week With Marilyn

Congratulations, Michelle Williams! Last weekend the actress gained the Golden Globe for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy" (imdb). Williams incarnated Marilyn Monroe in the movie "My Week with Marilyn", directed by Simon Curtis (imdb).

It`s a charming film about Marilyn `s little love adventure while she was shooting an unimportant flick ("The Prince and the Showgirl") 1957 in England. Williams represented a very complex Marilyn. If we believe the plot the mega-star was sometimes very unsure and innocent. Otherwise she indulged in the freedom provided by her English visit, including a short love affair, almost as a child would.

Williams`performance gives the film a lot of grace. I also enjoyed the nostalgic patina of the flick, which fit well into the now apparently fashionable 20th century movies  ("Iron Lady", "Edgar", "The Rum Diary").
