A legion of actors, including Lindsay Lohan, Glenn Close and (best of all) Marisa Tomei, read the doodlings and writings of Hollywood's most luminous star, Marilyn Monroe. Frankly, their thespian interpretations are the least interesting element of Liz Garbus's rather too gushing documentary. Her film is more compelling when it concentrates on archive footage and interviews with her contemporaries, Billy Wilder, Jack Lemmon and a prickly Laurence Olivier.
