Michelle Williams' Marilyn Monroe Movie To Premiere At NY Film Festival!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMichelle WilliamsEvents

my week with marilyn to premiere in ny film festival

Sounds like this should def be a highlight of the festival!

Waaaay back in October, we got a first look at Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn (above), and we thought she looked EXQUISITE!

This October, New York Film Festival goers will get to experience her exquisiteness for themselves, because Michelle's Marilyn movie will premiere on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the Lincoln Center in NYC.

Here's what festival chief Richard Pena had to say about the film in a statement:

"After seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams."

We're very excited for this one, and we're thrilled that Michelle is getting such great roles! Between last year's Blue Valentine and this film, it def seems like Hollywood is starting to truly realize how talented she is!

Are U looking forward to My Week With Marilyn?

    doesn't even hold a candle to marilyn

    She is too skinny to play Marilyn she was a curvy beautiful woman…doesn't look much like her

    I love Michelle Williams. I think she's a terrific actor but I'm not buying her as Marilyn. Michelle is too "girl next door" and simple but cute. Michelle doesn't resemble Marilyn at all. I think Scarlett Johansson would have been a better choice.

    saw this movie in a preview–she was really good. shockingly believable as marilyn

    idk how i feel about this. i guess i'll just have to wait and see. The photo just sorta looks like Michelle Willams in a Marilyn Monroe costume.

    I love Michelle Williams, but she looks NOTHING like Marilyn Monroe. Not even close. She's WAY too tiny, and WAY too skinny. Marilyn was NOT skinny. She's was very curvy. Michelle is a beanpole, and even padding in the boob and butt area can't hide that.

    She doesn't resemble Marilyn one bit. Seriously….

    Michelle Williams is much prettier then Marilyn Monroe.. This is a terrible picture, however.

    See, I'm sorry, Michelle just isn't all THAT stunning to begin with. I can't see how anyone can say that she's prettier than Marilyn was. Marilyn had a certain sparkle, even when she was hiding so much from the world, that Michelle could never capture. She looks nothing like Marilyn and really does just look like a wannabe impersonator.

    Another bad casting…

    yay yay yay!

    I wish Mira Sorvino was playing her again after doing the film "Norma Jean and Marilyn" in 96. She was amazing (meaning both Mira Sorvino and the actress herself, of course :) .

    Re: suzyelizabeth – I couldn't agree with you more.

    Looks nothing like MM. No one can look like MM she was one of a kind. She was a true beauty, around before all of the plastic surgery that all the actresses get now. The only thing MM did was have her nose done.
