Drama based on the memoirs of Colin Clark, who worked as an assistant on the set of 'The Prince and the Showgirl', the 1956 British-made film starring Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe. Monroe (Michelle Williams) has recently married playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott), and filming coincides with their British honeymoon. But when Miller returns to America, 23-year-old Colin (Eddie Redmayne), assistant to the irascible Olivier (Kenneth Branagh), seizes his opportunity and escorts the star on a short break in the English countryside. As she experiences the charms of the country and relaxes from the pressures of her celebrity and her work, Monroe recounts her remarkable story and reveals the fragile foundation of contradictions and insecurities on which her stardom is built. Judi Dench, Emma Watson and Dominic Cooper co-star.

Our review

"Michelle Williams gives perhaps the best performance of her career as she completely embodies Marilyn Monroe from her mannerisms, wit and above all, good looks. It's a shame then the script doesn't quite hold up."
