Michelle Williams and Emma Watson in the My Week With Marilyn trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I had little to no expectations for the upcoming film MY WEEK WITH MARILYN. But I have to say, after watching the first trailer, I’m now officially excited to see the movie. I was concerned it was going to be impossible for Michelle Williams to pull off playing Marilyn Monroe, but it looks like she actually does a great job. And I dig the romantic element/twist in the film and the idea of a young man falling in love with a Hollywood starlet. It should make for an interesting and complex love story. Let’s hope the full film can live up to the standards of the trailer.
Along with Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monore, Kenneth Branagh stars as Laurence Olivier, Dougray Scott is Arthur Miller, Judi Dench is Sybil Thorndike and Julia Ormond is Vivien Leigh. Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper,Emma Watson and Eddie Redmayne round out the cast. MY WEEK WITH MARILYN opens everywhere on November 4th.
