Michelle Williams is Marilyn Monroe in new poster for My Week With Marilyn

If you haven’t had a chance to see photos of Michelle Williams portraying Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film MY WEEK WITH MARILYN then you are missing out. Until I saw it myself, I too had a tough time believing that Michelle Williams could look like the legendary actress. We watched Williams grow up in the television show Dawson’s Creek but the actress has come a long way since then. She’s by far and away the most successful actor to come from that series and already has two Oscar nominations under her belt. If MY WEEK WITH MARILYN is any good, she could easily get a couple more awards for her work.
The film follows the friendship between Monroe and her assistant Colin Clark during the shooting of THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL. The story also covers the relationship between Monroe and the director/co-star of the film Laurence Olivier. MY WEEK WITH MARILYN stars: Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Dougray Scott, Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Julia Ormond, Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson. It opens in theaters on November 4, 2011.
