Could Michelle Williams look any more like Marilyn Monroe in our first set of My Week with Marilyn stills? She sure does in the My Week with Marilyn poster. Now, the film has released two more photos and the Oscar nominee continues to astound in her portrayal of the icon -- at least solely based on these pics.
My Week with Marilyn lands in theaters November 4 and has Academy Award buzz all over it for its two leads. Williams is Monroe and Kenneth Branagh is Sir Laurence Olivier.
The story follows, you guessed it, a week with Monroe as seen through the eyes of the woman, Colin Clark, hired to be her assistant while she films The Prince and the Showgirl in England. It’s set in 1957 and thus far, the art direction looks right on the mark.
But in these new photos, the kudos has to go to the hair and makeup team. They have turned the chameleon-like actress into the Hollywood legend. It is a difficult task for any hair, makeup and wardrobe team to recreate someone so permanently burned on the public’s consciousness. From these early looks at My Week with Marilyn, the film’s creative team scores.
