The Independent Culture

This star-studded comedy-drama is set in 1956, when an increasingly nervous Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) is at Pinewood Studios shooting The Prince and the Showgirl with an increasingly frantic Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh, never better).

When it dares to be bitchy, it's a terrific farce, but there are a few too many reverential speeches in praise of Monroe's God-given genius.
