First Movie Review Of The Year: My Week With Marilyn, starring Michele Williams as Marilyn Monroe. It‘s the story of the diary of a flunkie who worked an early Monroe movie with Lawrence Oliver in England. We get to know the early Monroe and she is one messed up chick! Although Michele doesn’t look that much like Monroe, she is fabulous to the point that you forget that and she becomes Marilyn in the movie., I believe she will be nominated for an Oscar. This is a low budget film, that hits all the marks. Funny story about Michele Williams, she was a regular listeners of mine, and a fan. She listened to me on my Kalispell, Montana affiliate, The Bear. (Rated Pg 13) – (106 Minutes) – (3 Stars).
