My Week with Marilyn(2011)

I know that they were trying to make Michelle Williams look like Monroe, but this was a failure. Seeing something like this makes you know that no one except Monroe looks like Monroe. I'd have preferred a subtle attempt, as they did with Branagh -- looking really nothing like Olivier except by faint suggestion. All in all, well worth the watch. They did capture that problem of public vs. private life for mega-stars, and specifically in Monroe's case, they successfully personalized that experience. Makes me want to see all of her movies again.
