{Love, Marilyn}

poster-art-for-Love-Marilyn_event_main.jpg

I didn't take in too many documentaries last week at the Newport Beach Film Festival, but one that I did see and enjoy was Love, Marilyn.
Drawing on never-before-seen personal papers, diaries and letters, director Liz Garbus works with acclaimed actors to evoke the multiple aspects of the real Marilyn. Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Jennifer Ehle, Lindsay Lohan, Lili Taylor, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood each appear on screen to enact Marilyn’s words.

This film is currently screening in select festivals. No word yet on official release date in the US.
