Annotation: "In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams). Nearly 40 years on, his diary account ‘The Prince, the Showgirl and Me’ was published, but one week was missing and this is the story of that week: an idyll in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of working. When Arthur Miller makes a brief trip to Paris, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce her to some of the pleasures of British life."

Synopsis: Based on the famously missing chapter in Colin Clark's memoir THE PRINCE, THE SHOWGIRL AND ME, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN reveals the enchanted week that the then-lowly production assistant spent with the most famous celebrity of the era during the production of the classic 1957 comedy romance THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL. The year was 1956. Colin Clark was an ambitious 23-year-old determined to make a name for himself in film. As summer gets underway, Clark manages to land a position as a production assistant on the film THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL, starring Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). Monroe had just gotten married to playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott), and the newlyweds were on their honeymoon as production got underway. Later, when Miller leaves, young Clark seizes the opportunity to befriend the platinum blonde beauty, and give her a taste of everyday life in England -- far away from the bright lights of Hollywood and the suffocating pressures of fame.

Review: -11/18/2011
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "What matters is the performance by Michelle Williams. She evokes so many Marilyns, public and private, real and make-believe."
Review: -11/23/2011
"It's lush and vibrant when Williams is onscreen....It's hard to imagine a more unforgettable Monroe than the one Williams has given us — except for the original, of course."
Review: -11/23/2011
"Disappearing into the role of the troubled actress, Williams captures the star's breathy voice and distinctive mannerisms while delving a few notches deeper."
Review: -11/23/2011
"Michelle Williams, as Marilyn, both anchors the movie and upends it. Miss it and you’ll miss one of the finest performances of this year."
Review: -11/22/2011
"It’s all compellingly staged, with Williams providing the dark, unknowable mystery at the heart of the piece."
Review: -12/02/2011
"Williams knows exactly how to throw the switch that turns on MM's movie-star incandescence, then flick it off to reveal the vulnerable young woman in the dark."
Review: -12/08/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "What Williams does, with fierce artistry and feeling, is illuminate Monroe's insights and insecurities about herself at the height of her fame....It's a great, soulful performance."
Review: -01/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Williams around which the pic revolves. And she's nothing short of heartbreaking, showing us MM at breaking point..."
Review: -01/01/2012
"[Williams's] performance goes way beyond mere mimicry of voice and gesture -- though she gets those right too, and even does all her own singing -- into psychological re-creation."
