LOVE, MARILYN

Recognizing that Marilyn’s life story has already been the subject of innumerable films, essays, novels, and plays – filmmaker Liz Garbus focuses on the journals, papers, and poems recently discovered among the personal effects left by Lee Strasberg, legendary Director of the Actor’s Studio and the actress’s mentor and confidant.  As interpreted by some of today’s most talented actresses, Marilyn’s words are interspersed with readings from Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, Elia Kazan, Billy Wilder and others who wrote about her -- with both glowing appreciation and glowering frustration. Ambitious, insecure, nervous, seductive, at times painfully self-aware, and at other times, strangely naïve – Marilyn Monroe was a woman of many parts. LOVE, MARILYN brings them all to life. LOVE, MARILYN is a co-production of Studiocanal and Diamond Girl Productions and an HBO Documentary Films presentation.

 

REVIEWS

“A heady cocktail of journalistic rigor and show business flair... just right for its blazingly famous, endlessly enigmatic subject.”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times

LOVE, MARILYN is a miracle of a documentary that lets you see who Marilyn Monroe really was.”
– Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“An immersive account of the actress’ career that both deconstructs her celebrity while interrogating its impact on her troubled existence. Moves beyond the speculative arena and investigates Monroe’s character through her own private lens.”
– Eric Kohn, indieWIRE

“Beautifully made. A lucid, thoughtful distillation of Marilyn’s life story. Superbly edited. One of the most skillful and entertaining summaries of Marilyn’s endlessly fascinating rise and fall.”
– Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
