MOVIE: MY WEEK WITH MARILYN
MASTERPIECE ( FOXTEL), 6.45PM
Michelle Williams excels as Marilyn Monroe, in Britain in 1956 to make The Prince and the Showgirl with the somewhat fearsome Sir Laurence Olivier ( Kenneth Branagh) co- starring and directing. Williams is superb as she unloads Monroe’s insecurities on Colin Clark ( Eddie Redmayne), on whose memoir Simon Curtis’s film is based. Only 23 at the time and trying to find his way into the movie business, Clark becomes a confidant and maybe even more for the beautiful star at the height of her fame, if not her selfconfidence.
