That's all familiar lore but, to his credit, director Simon Curtis lays out these separate ambitions and conflicting tensions with breezy dispatch in the early frames.

A triumphantly entertaining examination of the ultimate movie icon, miraculously embodied by Michelle Williams.

Five stars for Williams' extraordinary performance and for the delightful first half, which zips along at a fabulous pace.

Perfectly innocuous and at times somewhat touching, My Week With Marilyn never insults your intelligence, even if it doesn't exactly stretch it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

The talented cast offered stellar performances, but the most surprising was Michelle Williams who took on the daunting task of playing the iconic Monroe.

A little too hopped up on biopic cliches to say anything particularly interesting or even coherent.

No, Michelle Williams is not Marilyn Monroe. But what she does in this movie is fascinating and worthy of consideration.

Its taken-for-granted target audience should feel manipulated enough to rebel against such obvious Weinstein Co. Oscar bait.
Eric Melin
November 28, 2011
My Week With Marilyn is a frustrating lark of a film anchored by an impressive performance from Michelle Williams.

The Prince and the Showgirl proved to be a sluggish flop, yet the film it has inspired fizzes and sparkles.

November 27, 2011
It's an enchanting tragi-comedy, a hugely enjoyable trifle, and may prove an eye-opener to generations too young to remember the allure of Marilyn Monroe.

Michelle Williams is sensationally good as the wilful, brilliantly gifted, deeply disturbed Monroe...

This is one of the most enchanting movies about Monroe and the old days of Hollywood ever made.

The primary pleasure of this film is an overwhelming portrayal of Marilyn Monroe by Michelle Williams, certainly the highlight of her career, and possibly the best female performance of the year.

Wall Street Journal

A dubious idea done in by Adrian Hodges's shallow script and Simon Curtis's clumsy direction.
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
November 26, 2011
This indifferently shot film winds up being another in a long line of creative works by men that exploit the legacy of Marilyn Monroe for their own satisfaction and little public good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
JoBlo's Movie Emporium
November 25, 2011
True or not, My Week With Marilyn is an unabashedly romantic charmer with a stunning portrayal of the late, great Marilyn Monroe.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Michelle Williams is wonderful as the troubled, insecure, scared starlet.
