Michelle Williams is outstanding in this film. She's brilliant as Marilyn, there's no other word - except superlative,I suppose. She's one of the very few actors in Hollywood who could play this role and play it as beautifully as she did. I've always admired her acting; she just keeps on doing it right, film after film, and building on her formidable talent. What a treat to have watched her week with Marilyn! Thank you Michelle.
