My Week with Marilyn

~Monday~  Tonight I saw:

My thoughts in no particular order, hence the rhetorical device known as the unordered list:

  • I thought this film was very well done.

  • I never looked at the time at all during this movie.

  • I thought the Eddie Redmayne, playing Colin, did a great job of portraying that "I can't believe this is happening to me" feeling that his character must have experienced while all this was taking place.

  • I thought Michelle Williams, playing Marilyn, really nailed that "I know I can turn it on when I really need to" knack that Marilyn had.

  • I really liked Kenneth Branagh's portrayal of Sir Laurence Olivier.

  • I always love Judi Dench in anything. This was no exception.

  • I wonder why it took so long to make this movie, since the book came out in 1995, I believe it said at the end.

  • I would love to have seen/known Colin's reaction when he got the news of Marilyn's death and to know if he was invited to the funeral.

Glad to see this series of blogs!
I do miss you when you're gone. My big question is this: Am I in your new address book?

Re: Glad to see this series of blogs!
Ha! Ironically enough, I never put any of our delegation in my address book, but that was because that old address book was mainly centered around U.S. mail addresses, and I knew I'd be communicating with the group almost exclusively through email.

The closest thing to an address book was this directory that I created early on in our blog.

You're now one of those people whose information that I need to be in touch is all available on Facebook. :-) I also know where your blog lives. :-)

Thanks for continuing to visit here, my friend! I appreciate you.

I was hoping to see this over the holidays, but alas, the holiday schedule was too packed with other distractions. Now that I have seen your review, and it was the second movie this year for which you failed to check the time, I will definitely make the time to get my butt in a theater seat this weekend.

Re: Yay!
Great! I'll look forward to hearing what you thought of it, and it'll be okay if you hate it. :-) That's what makes the world go 'round.
