Michelle Williams takes on an icon in the My Week with Marilyn trailer
I was a little skeptical when I heard Michelle Williams was cast as Marilyn Monroe in MY WEEK WITH MARILYN. Sure she was blonde and a good actress, but could she really pull of portraying the biggest bombshell in Hollywood history?
After watching this new trailer, I think that the answer might just be yes. Williams 100% looks the part, and brings a life to the actress that shines through even in a short trailer such as this. And with a supporting cast that includes Dominic Cooper, Judi Dench, Emma Watson and Kenneth Branagh, this is definitely one to watch. Check out the official synopsis below, and the trailer after that.
Colin Clark met Marilyn Monroe while working as a young assistant on Laurence Olivier’s “The Prince and the Showgirl.” When Marilyn experienced emotional difficulties during shooting, the 23-year-old third assistant director came to her aid and romance developed. But one week of honesty and fun was not enough to save the doomed star from self-destruction.
