My Week With Marilyn
In 1956, 23 year old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl. The film famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was at the same time on a honeymoon with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott). Throughout filming, each evening Clark wrote the days events in a diary. Nearly 40 years after, Clark's book The Prince, the Showgirl and Me was published, but wih one week missing. The account of that week was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn. When Arthur Miller left England, Colin had the opportunity to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a celebrity desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
