    My Weekend With Marilyn

    The burden of being glamorous and sexual

    Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful film stars of all time, Marilyn Monroe isn’t exactly what we all know of her. I saw this movie this weekend at BAM Rose Theater and I loved it. Michelle Williams was stunning and the movie told the story about the starlet who was more afraid to be alone, was nervous and had lots of self doubt. She overcompensated her insecurities by being ‘Marilyn’ the character and lived her life like a movie. I can definitely relate to her. A lot of times, people see you in a certain way and you feel the need to play into it. But when the disparity between reality and fantasy gets too big and the gap gets too hard to fill, it becomes really dangerous. Moral of the story? Be who you are, a bit of both and all the time.
