Over a dozen images have emerged online from Simon Curtis’ ‘My Week with Marilyn.’ The film stars the Oscar-nominated Michelle Williams as the iconic actress, singer and model, Marilyn Monroe.  ‘My Week with Marilyn’ is based on the memoir of Colin Clark, who was an assistant to Laurence Olivier on ‘The Prince And The Showgirl,’ and who escorted Marilyn Monroe around Britain after her husband Arthur Miller left the country. The biographical drama is directed by Simon Curtis and also stars the likes of Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Julia Ormond, Dougray Scott, Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson. Look out for ‘My Week with Marilyn’ in cinemas November 4th in the US, and November 25th in the UK. Check out my interview with Michelle Williams for the film here.

‘My Week With Marilyn’ chronicles a week in the life of Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) in which she escapes the shackles of her Hollywood career and embraces British life with Colin Clark. In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark, 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 that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account ‘The Prince, the Showgirl and Me’ was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as ‘My Week with Marilyn’ – this is the story of that week.  When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
