My Week with Marilyn
Early in the summer of 1956, Marilyn Monroe (Williams) came to England to shoot "The Prince and the Showgirl" with Sir Laurence Olivier (Branagh). That same summer, 23-year-old Colin Clark (Redmayne) set foot on a film set for the first time in his life. Newly graduated from Oxford, Clark aspired to be a filmmaker and found a job as a lowly production hand. Forty years later, he recounted his experiences of the six-month shoot in a diary-style memoir entitled The Prince, the Showgirl and Me. But one week in Clark's account was missing. It wasn't until years later that Clark revealed why. In a follow-up memoir entitled My Week with Marilyn, he recounted the true story of one magical week he spent alone with the world's biggest star... the week he spent with Marilyn. By turns comic and poignant, "My Week with Marilyn" offers an uncommonly intimate look at the Hollywood icon, charting the brief, charged connection she forged with a young man who came to understand her better than anyone.
