This book had to be good! You get to see everyone who was a part of that movie and what their role is. At this point in time she was married to playwright Arthur Miller.
This book did not portray Arthur as a very kind fellow, more of an egotistical self-centered jerk. Colin felt sorry for Marilyn in most of the book; he stated numerous times that the people surrounding her were so terrible for her and this I completely agree with and I believe they were a great contribute to her demise. The Strasbergs, Milton Greene, and Hedda were the people that were her team.
- See a Problem?
Lee and Paula Strasberg were her acting coaches on this film although Paula was the only one present; Lee was always contacted by phone when big problems arose. Milton Greene was her partner in Marilyn Monroe Productions and the man who got her out of her wretched contract with 20th Century Fox; he was in charge of getting her to the studio each day, which proved to be a great burden considering she was always late.
My Week With Marilyn by Colin Clark
Hedda was a secretary and really no help at all considering she was drunk most of the time. He said she was just so hypnotizing no one could stay away from her. In the end the film turned out to be torture for everyone. This is when we first see Williams as Monroe. Williams captures Marilyn Monroe in this scene, but unfortunately not in many others. Quite simply, Williams nailed it. The portrayal of Marilyn as Elsie was stunning. Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe near the end of the film: Williams as Marilyn seeks out Clark to say goodbye before she returns to the US.
In this scene, we see a confident Marilyn, and to me at least, a Marilyn that is more realistic in nature. Both rendered superb performances. This certainly was the case with Branagh. He was Olivier, literally. Both will likely receive Oscar nominations, as well they should in my opinion. MWWM captures those struggles, and we get some idea of what it must have been like on set each day. The sets were lavish, and the costumes were realistic.
The dress Marilyn wore as Elsie Marina was reproduced for Michelle Williams, and it was quite good as a replica.

Other costumes Williams wears in the film are also quite realistic, resembling clothing that Marilyn actually wore. The cars used in the film appeared to be from the period, and all was quite believable. One could believe they were actually watching the film being made back in Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe, the practically suicidal broken waif: A weak, slow, downtrodden, perpetually suffering, blubbering, annoying airhead.
