Marilyn Monroe would have been 86 this year – underrated, misunderstood and captivating on screen. Olivier hoped that making ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ with her in 1957 would make him a Hollywood star and she hoped that working with Britian’s leading thesp would mean she was finally taken seriously – but it didn’t work out that way for either of them. Five years later – she was found dead in suspicious circumstances. ‘My Week with Marilyn’ recreates a little known week of her life spent in England and the solace she found with an impressionable young man, Colin Clark – a true story, based on his book.
