Reviews

"Played terrifically well by Williams: this is a figure she recreates, not by hamming up the pouty lips and breathiness, but the scared and brimming eyes, wide with unshed tears...She is childlike and yet always aware at some unconscious, almost physiological level of how she is shaping and controlling the situation. ★★★★" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Playing both the damaged, insecure woman and the sensual celebrity construct, as well as the role with which Marilyn Monroe was struggling during a particularly difficult shoot, Williams gets us on intimate terms with one of Hollywood’s most enduring and tragic icons." - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"Kenneth Branagh steals the show, priceless as thespian and director Olivier, vain and anxious" - Angie Errigo, Empire
