My week with Marilyn

She really is quite wonderful, you know? And I am utterly fascinated with her.In the movie, Marilyn Monroe was portrayed as unreliable, profoundly unhappy and insecure but at the same time, she was vulnerable, childlike, insanely beautiful and magnetic in her charms. I'll admit I fell in love with her during the course of the movie last night and in true stalker fashion, spent hours googling her and today I borrowed one of her movies on DVD.

I could go on about how much I enjoyed the movie and what a fabulous actress Michelle Williams is , but I think you really should just go and watch it for yourself.

Please let me know if you love it as much as I do!

Marilyn was more of a voluptuous woman, so I was surprised that Michelle Williams was picked for this role, but since I've heard good things...I'll have to check it out.

I'm looking forward to seeing this film. It is being hyped at all the awards shows, and Michelle Williams is a great choice to play her. xx

It really was a beautiful film, in every way. She was the perfect Marilyn! BTW, you should check out a film called "Niagra" (1954) featuring a pretty different Marilyn. Not at all sweet ;)

Loved this movie too. I thought MW did an amazing job as Marilyn, I was sceptical before I saw the movie but she totally sold me and I was in love with her by the end.
