I’m sure this trailer deceives in ways I haven’t yet discerned. I’ve heard so-so things, but within these two minutes and 7 seconds, My Week With Marilyn looks fairly okay. It has poise, snap, craft. And a convincingly conservative yesteryear quality. And Michelle Williams‘ performance as Marilyn Monroe, you can sense, might eventually be regarded as a head-to-head, playing-a-famous-person comptetitor of Meryl Streep‘s Maggie Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

As noted, I won’t see it at the New York Film Festival this Sunday due to flying back to LA on Saturday.
