2011. 99 min.

13PG.

Drama.

In the late ’50s film icon Marilyn Monroe (MICHELLE WILLIAMS) visits London to make a fluffy period comedy with Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh).

Aspiring film hand Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) spends a week escorting her in the UK after her husband, playwright Arthur Miller, departs.

The film switches from Clark’s growing infatuation with the star to Olivier’s irritation with her erratic behaviour on set while the comedy is filmed.

The results are clichéd but Williams, who brilliantly evokes the screen legend, and the fresh-faced Redmayne manage to hold your interest. Worth seeing.
