Michelle Williams stuns in an Oscar-worthy performance in one of the year's best films.
| Original Score: 5.0/5
I believe the heart of the film, and the cleverest stroke of all, is Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark, someone few of us will have heard of.
A fun and tender tale of infatuation backed by two outstanding Oscar-nominated performances.
| Original Score: 4/5
When Michelle Williams is singing about starting a "Heat Wave" by "making my seat wave," friends you will believe it.
| Original Score: 3/4
The film hinges on Williams' performance and not once do you question that she is Monroe. It's that "all-in" that makes the film work in such fantastic fashion.
| Original Score: A-
Definitive performances keep the viewer interested in a less than compelling screenplay.
My Week with Marilyn is a performance master class from Williams, Branagh, Dench, Ormond etc orbiting around the most boring protagonist that I've seen in recent memory.
| Original Score: 3/5
A few good performances here and there do nothing to prevent this sappy, doe-eyed production from falling head-first into tedious territory.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
a charming look at a small sequence of Monroe's life and the subtle impact she had on those around her. A wonderful film that goes beyond the story you already know.
Worth a watch just for Williams and the charming tale it tells.
Michelle Williams is astonishingly good as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. It's a great shame the film itself can't equal the brilliance of Williams' performance.
Williams captures the vulnerability, allure and transcendent appeal of Monroe perfectly.
The subject matter is interesting but I was disappointed with its delivery. The screenplay is repetitious.
| Original Score: C+
Made with sublime sensitivity - not to be mistaken for weakness - My Week With Marilyn is a shimmering, memorable, magnificent movie
Like Chanel No 5, whose fragrance with which she is identified, the bewitching allure of Marilyn Monroe wafts throughout this gem of a film, allowing us an intimate insight into her fragility, loneliness and insecurity
An uneven story buoyed by a transformative performance by Michelle Williams.
| Original Score: 4/5
Michelle Williams, who has received a lot of criticism for the shape of her body, deserves recognition for one of the year's best performances for her very convincing portrayal of Marilyn Monroe.
| Original Score: B
Based on a true story about the iconic Marilyn Monroe, "My Week with Marilyn" depicts the actress at her most gorgeous and most frustrating.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
It is Michelle Williams who really sets the movie apart. She eerily recalls the ethereal Monroe and her subtle shifts in mood really get at the heart of the often somnambulant girl-woman.
Williams and a solid cast keep the intrigue coming.
