Movie Info

Based on the recent book, Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters, edited by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, October 2010, Fragments: Marilyn Monroe, explores the unknown side of Monroe "a deeply curious artist, a savvy businessperson" and challenges the long-held misperception of Marilyn as the dumb blonde archetype. Alongside interviews with experts and former acquaintances, A-list actors read from Marilyn's own writings, bringing her words to a contemporary audience for the first time.

This intelligent, sensitive doc gets a bit pretentious as today's stars read Monroe's words.

Remove the comma from the title and Love, Marilyn plays like the command it is.

April 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Do any fresh revelations or insights remain, a half century past Monroe's overdose death at age 36?

April 4, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A heartfelt and well-intentioned love letter to an already deeply beloved star, and for anyone who's still not convinced, the picture works hard to make the case for Monroe's gifts as an actress.

December 13, 2012 | Full Review…

Monroe's vulnerability and sense of inadequacy, her frustration and solitude, come through poignantly.

December 3, 2012 | Full Review…

It was a mistake to ask anyone to dramatically read a chicken recipe Monroe prepared for Joe DiMaggio (one of her husbands), or some of the other scribbles included here.

Audience Reviews for Love, Marilyn

While it's interesting after a fashion to hear these actors read her journals and try to make them come alive, sometimes too empathetically, it becomes repetitive after a while. What could have added an extra needed dimension to this since they gathered such an amazing array of talent is to have these respected thespians, well except for Lohan, tell what value they found in Marilyn's work and what she meant to them.
