superb acting

Michelle Wlliams does a superb job portraying Marilyn Monroe. The story wasn't exactly exciting but it did show the real person behind the star

meh movie

Yes, it was a bit boring. The acting was swell, Michelle Williams was wonderful and charming. It was a neat insight into another side of Marilyn and her insecurities, but there wasn't much plot. It fell flat.

Boring

Call me an old fuddy duddy, but I found this movie to be a bit of a yawner. My wife concurs, and if you think this is proof that love concurs all, better brush up on your spelling.

Following the Crowd

I have to admit I did not want to watch this movie. I was concerned it would be just another movie exploiting a tragic tale. I was pleasantly surprised at how wrong I was. It was nice to see Marilyn with her guard down.

NOT BAD

JUST NOT BAD...

good acting

the acting in this movie was quite good. especially by michelle williams who portrays legendary actress marilyn monroe whose tragic story is known by many.

Great act

Michelle was great playing Marilyn, they could not choose better actress to channel her.

Interesting Biography

I never really understood the draw of Marilyn Monroe other than being attractive and kind of talking like a baby, which I guess men found attractive at that time? But this movie really helped me understand her complexity more. What an interesting person! I thought Michelle Williams was amazing as Marilyn Monroe. Such a great performance. I really got the complexity of this person and how completely insecure she was. And at the same time, Kenneth Branagh was portraying the very same thing in Sir Laurence Olivier. You really get a sense of how insecure some (or most?) actors are, and why they do what they do. This was a very interesting story-one that I would watch over again.

Not bad

This movie turned out to be better than I expected. Michelle Williams is cute as a button and talented enough to help me understand the allure of Marilyn Monroe. Grade: B.
