“My Week With Marilyn” reactions from New York City – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The press screening for Simon Curtis’s “My Week With Marilyn” was held Sunday morning in Manhattan ahead of the film’s Centerpiece screening at the New York Film Festival, and reactions were largely favorable.

Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, who will be honored at the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards at the end of the month, lights up the screen as icon Marilyn Monroe, who falls into a whirlwind romance with a young suitor (Eddie Redmayne) while filming “The Prince and the Showgirl” alongside Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh).

“My Week with Marilyn was terrific… like The Artist, it’s a movielovers’ movie for sure. Great performances all around!” Tweeted Ed Douglas of ComingSoon.net.

NYU student Danny King agreed, calling it, “Lovely old-fashioned entertainment. Pre-hyped Oscar talk for Williams and Branagh fully justified. Both wonderful.”

While film journalist Peter Labuza added, “Very similar to ME AND ORSON WELLES, fun, but too much on the nose. Williams/Brannagh are delightful.”

Katie Calautti of SpinoffOnline was a little more reserved, Tweeting, “Elderly people in front of me gushing over My Week with Marilyn = all you need to know about the goal of My Week with Marilyn. #oscarbait”

But David Ehrlich of Movies.com and Box Office Magazine isn’t impressed, calling it “The Blonde’s Speech. A movie made for the Golden Globes. Williams does her best, but it all feels like dress-up.”

We’ll have more reaction as we get closer to tonight’s Centerpiece screening. Keep checking back for “Marilyn” updates. The film will be in theaters on Nov. 4.
