Last night I was lucky enough to go and see My Week with Marilyn, which for a while didn't seem like it was going to be screened at my local cinema! Where I live the film has clearly been understated and only one of the cinemas shows it and with very few screenings. It's a shame really because it's been pushed aside for the main stream and higher grossing films.
The movie itself follows the brief moments a 23 year old third assistant has with her. Colin Clarke, like many of the men, becomes bewitched by all that she is, and at 7 years her junior falls in love with her. The movie is set whilst Marilyn was working with Laurence Olivier filming The Prince and the Showgirl. So it also touches on Marilyn's reported bad behaviour and crazy antics while filming.
