Everything we’ve seen from Simon Curtis’ My Week With Marilyn (all of which you can catch up on here) has been terrific, and without wanting to jinx anything, it’s all certainly pointing towards at least another nomination for Williams in the Best Actress category at the Oscars early next year. The awards race is close to being in full swing, and all expectations are for this to be a contender.
We’ve now got another terrific clip to share with you, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, entitled ‘Can You Spell That?’, and it gives us a look at the charm that Williams emanates in the role, dazzling a roomful of British reporters throwing questions her way.
“Colin Clark met Marilyn Monroe while working as a young assistant on Laurence Olivier’s “The Prince and the Showgirl.” When Marilyn experienced emotional difficulties during shooting, the 23-year-old third assistant director came to her aid and romance developed. But one week of honesty and fun was not enough to save the doomed star from self-destruction.”
Along with Williams, My Week With Marilyn has a terrific cast that includes Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Emma Watson, and Dame Judi Dench. It will be out in cinemas on 25th November – this Friday – and I really can’t wait to see it. I think Williams is going to be brilliant in the role, and this clip is just a small demonstration of her wonderful acting talents. Without further ado, here it is for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
