March 4, 2013
A fun and tender tale of infatuation backed by two outstanding Oscar-nominated performances.
December 28, 2012
When Michelle Williams is singing about starting a "Heat Wave" by "making my seat wave," friends you will believe it.
August 25, 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.
June 13, 2012
Definitive performances keep the viewer interested in a less than compelling screenplay.
April 27, 2012
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.
March 12, 2012
A few good performances here and there do nothing to prevent this sappy, doe-eyed production from falling head-first into tedious territory.
March 8, 2012
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.
March 8, 2012
Worth a watch just for Williams and the charming tale it tells.
February 27, 2012
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.
February 17, 2012
The subject matter is interesting but I was disappointed with its delivery. The screenplay is repetitious.
February 16, 2012
Made with sublime sensitivity - not to be mistaken for weakness - My Week With Marilyn is a shimmering, memorable, magnificent movie
February 16, 2012
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
February 3, 2012
An uneven story buoyed by a transformative performance by Michelle Williams.
February 2, 2012
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.
January 27, 2012
Most of all, without a shadow of a doubt or a moment's hesitation, I can state for the record Michelle Williams is sublime as the titular central figure, deftly crafting a performance that easily ranks as one of the best of the entire year.
January 16, 2012
Based on a true story about the iconic Marilyn Monroe, "My Week with Marilyn" depicts the actress at her most gorgeous and most frustrating.
January 13, 2012
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.
January 2, 2012
Williams and a solid cast keep the intrigue coming.
December 29, 2011
Williams is brilliant as Monroe while Branagh matches her move for move.
