"My Week With Marilyn" was the surprise of the year. As a Marilyn and Olivier fan, I was not excited about a story based on the making of one of their lesser films, The Prince and the Showgirl. Instead I found a terrific portrayal not only of superstar filmmaking but of the essence of a woman who is every smart female who ever felt sexualized, abandoned, ecstatic or scared..and a brilliant man confused that with all the training in the world, charisma and emotional clarity and honesty will end up the star.
