Sometimes You Just Need to Get Away
Sir Laurence Olivier is making a movie in London. Young Colin Clark, an eager film student, wants to be involved and he navigates himself a job on the set. When film star Marilyn Monroe arrives for the start of shooting, all of London is excited to see the blonde bombshell, while Olivier is struggling to meet her many demands and acting ineptness, and Colin is intrigued by her. Colin's intrigue is met when Marilyn invites him into her inner world where she struggles with her fame, her beauty and her desire to be a great actress.

Michelle Williams' amazing and transcendent performance elevates what could have been a Starz Movie of the Week, but this film contains far less Marilyn than you'd think, and focuses instead on a bland, baby-faced Director's 3rd Assistant who's personality is an utter snooze factory. Nevertheless, it made me watch 'The Prince and the Showgirl' and 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' again, so it can't be all bad.

Great movie! Michelle Williams is not as charming as Marilyn though.
