Have you ever just sat back and observed your surroundings. Being a high school student and all i feel as if i’m constantly catching myself being caught up in the mainstream events of everything. But every now and then i sit back and watch. I watch how people interact with each other, I watch people lie to one another, I watch how people flirt with one another, and my personal favorite… i watch how people think of themselves. Just the way people walk can tell you what they think of themselves. For instance Slouchers are self loathers, tip toe walkers think their better then everyone else , and flat footers are just people who are to damn lazy to lift their feet. Just spend a day not talking,not interacting, not even staring. Just observe. I dare you.
Let’s start off by saying that this film has earned a full five stars from The Little Hawk. My Week with Marilyn was lead by an ensemble cast with a triumphant story of how everything is not as it seems. Monroe’s character was played by the gracious Michelle Williams. Williams went above and beyond when it came to being Marilyn. She did not merely imitate her, she embodied her. Williams spent three months talking only in a Marilyn Monroe voice. Scenes in the film in which Monroe is her picture perfect sexual innuendo self are breathtaking while scenes in which we are shown a vulnerable and fragile Marilyn will have you tearing up. Williams most recently won the “Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Golden Globe Award” and is sure to be a promising nominee for Best Actress in the Oscar race. Williams co-star Kenneth Branagh who plays the cynical potty mouth director and star of the film Laurence Olivier. Branagh’s portrayal of Olivier was tremendous and showstopping. When he was not lusting over Marilyn’s beauty, he was yelling at everyone about why he is the star of the movie. Branagh also snagged a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor and will likely receive an Oscar nod.
Aside from the films impeccable cast, It also had fantastic Cinematography. The sets were beautiful. When you were not met with the alluring Scotland countryside, you saw the dazzling scenery of London. The script was amazing with very entertaining dialogue . The chemistry between the actors was that of Jack’s and Rose’s from the Titantic. This movie is a must-see before or during Oscar season.
I can not get the song “Supertight” from Get him to the Greek out of my fucking head!
