MOVIE: MY WEEK WITH MAR­I­LYN

MAS­TER­PIECE ( FOX­TEL), 6.45PM

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

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.
