Please Describe the My Week With Marilyn Trailer to Me

My Week With Marilyn screens this weekend as the Centerpiece selection of the New York Film Festival, and seeing as I have every intention of hauling my sleeping bag and lantern and Boggle game over and camping out overnight for a seat, there is no way I'm compromising a shred of my anticipation by watching Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh and the rest of the principals gathered in the film's first trailer. But! That doesn't mean I won't read your inspired descriptions of what happens within.

Be imaginative (how are the monster effects, for example?), be bemused (contradictions are welcome!), be funny, be candid... just be yourself in your reading of Simon Curtis's film, which The Weinstein Company is set to release Nov. 4. I'm counting on your creativity.

VERDICT: Ready... set... go.

    Sorry but she's just horribly miscast. :shrug: And this trailer proves it.

  • Jen Yamato says:

    I can't see past Michelle Williams's Michelle Williams-ness. Huge problem.

    In a world... Hollywood! Dateline 195-something!... sappy piano music... oscar bait oscar bait oscar bait.... T-Rex attack... is that the set from The King's Speech? Not the gay porno one, the other one... forbidden love... Hermione Granger... more Oscar bait swelling music... another quality picture from the Weinstein Company.

    Hmmm... Not sure what to think. It's pointless to judge a performance based on a trailer. However, from these brief snippets it looks like Williams has made no attempt at all to mimic Monroe's voice and facial expressions.
    Maybe it will make it easier to think of her as a character in a movie rather than someone who's doing an impression of someone else.

    The best performance as Marilyn was given by Catherine Hicks in the 1980 TV movie "Marilyn: The Untold Story."

  • ??? says:

    I thought this was supposed to be about Marilyn Monroe...

  • henninggirl says:

    To be fair, I don't think Marilyn Monroe is a castable role. These was something about her that always seemed completely impossible to replicate.
