Big Hollywood

Michelle Williams stuns in an Oscar-worthy performance in one of the year's best films.

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.

Concrete Playground

A fun and tender tale of infatuation backed by two outstanding Oscar-nominated performances.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

When Michelle Williams is singing about starting a "Heat Wave" by "making my seat wave," friends you will believe it.

December 28, 2012

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.

Definitive performances keep the viewer interested in a less than compelling screenplay.

2UE That Movie Show

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.

A few good performances here and there do nothing to prevent this sappy, doe-eyed production from falling head-first into tedious territory.

The Popcorn Junkie

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.

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.

Laramie Movie Scope

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.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Based on a true story about the iconic Marilyn Monroe, "My Week with Marilyn" depicts the actress at her most gorgeous and most frustrating.

Knight at the Movies

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.
