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

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 is brilliant as Monroe while Branagh matches her move for move.

The egregiously lackadaisical vibe ensures that the novelty of the premise slowly-but-surely wears off...

An effective and entertaining portrait of how a young, starstruck man gets sucked into the dysfunction of the world's biggest movie star.

Marilyn Monroe can be best characterized as a mass of insecurities in a non-stop war with a gigantic ego. Award-bound Michelle Williams captures it perfectly.

He says he had a fling with her and, while I don't necessarily doubt his story, it's not as interesting as the tricky relationship between Olivier and Monroe.

It's a remarkable portrait and one that makes My Week with Marilyn a special film and one of the season's must-sees.

Who knows how many more Marilyn Monroe films Hollywood will make. 'My Week' is one of the best, but outside of the 'Marilyn genre,' this is not one that will be nearly as timeless as the icon herself.

TV director Simon Curtis does a so-so job filming Colin Clark's lightweight 2000 story in his memoir.

The cast is amazing and the situations often funny and often touching, but the film could have used some sort of revelation about its title character.

It seems like oversimplified hogwash, but that's how films like this go.

But where the film does succeed is in giving us an insight into what has always been a baffling film. The Prince and the Showgirl seemed as odd an onscreen pairing as it was off screen.

Michelle Williams...let me tell you something: she was Marilyn Monroe. Or...if she's not playing Marilyn Monroe, she's playing what we all think Marilyn Monroe is.

Michelle Williams' glowing performance, at times touching, tragic, innocent and sultry, rekindles Monroe's magic. Her British co-stars, especially Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench, are memorable even in Monroe's light.

The astonishing experience of watching Michelle Williams transform herself into Marilyn Monroe tends to block out everything else going on.

Michelle Williams brings depth and compassion to her performance as Hollywood's tragic blond bombshell, and her sincerity invests this otherwise minor film with a sort of grandeur.
