Here's another great picture of ultra talented Michelle Williams in the lead role in the upcoming drama MY WEEK WITH MARILYN which describes the time when Hollywood's favourite blond escaped the shackles of her movie career and embraced British life.
    Directed by young Simon Curtis the film features an almost breathtaking cast: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh as sir Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench, Dougray Scott as Marilyn's husband Arthur Miller, Dominic Cooper, Emma Watson, Derek Jacobi, and Julia Ormond as Vivien Leigh.
    In the early summer of 1956, 23-year-old Colin Clark, just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller. Nearly 40 years on, his diary account "The Prince, the Showgirl and Me" was published, but one week was missing, and this was published some years later as "My Week with Marilyn".
    The film tells the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life: an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
    Michelle Williams told THE DAILY MAIL that she didn't want to accept the role in the beginning: But I knew I wouldn't be able to resist, eventually. Physically and vocally, everything about her is different from me. I've kind of gone to school and had teachers to help me understand Marilyn, so I could project an essence of her. When I first approached the part, I thought that there were three, even four parts to -Marilyn.
    MY WEEK WITH MARILYN is out sometime in 2012.Source URL:
