BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the       Blu-ray™ and DVD release of the “warm, wonderful and enchanting” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer) film, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, starring three-time Academy Award® nominee Michelle Williams (BLUE VALENTINE), who is “flawless, brilliant and exhilarating” (Bruce Handy, Vanity Fair) in the iconic title role.  Based on Colin Clark’s memoir, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN also stars Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh (HAMLET) as Sir Laurence Olivier, Tony Award® winner Eddie Redmayne (THE GOOD SHEPHERD) as Clark, and Academy Award® winner Judi Dench (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE) as Dame Sybil Thorndike.

A strong contender this awards season, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN has received two 2012 Academy Award® nominations, including Best Actress in a Leading Role (Michelle Williams) and Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Kenneth Branagh).  Williams won a 2012 Golden Globe® Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, while the film received nominations for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture (Kenneth Branagh).  Additionally, the film received two Screen Actors Guild Award® nominations for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role (Michelle Williams) and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role (Kenneth Branagh).

Rex Reed, film critic for The New York Observer, hailed MY WEEK WITH MARILYN as “Pure perfection!”  In her review for TIME magazine, film critic Mary Pols wrote, “Michelle Williams captures Monroe’s mystique and humanity with uncanny accuracy.”  Wrote Vanity Fair film critic, Bruce Handy, “Michelle Williams is flawless, brilliant and exhilarating.  I can’t think of a better performance in the role of an icon.”  Pete Hammond, film critic for Deadline Hollywood, described the film as “One of the most purely entertaining films of the year!”  Finally, in his review for The New Yorker, film critic David Denby called the film “Charming and touching.  Expertly made… Michelle makes the star come alive.”

During Marilyn Monroe’s (Michelle Williams) first trip to London to film The Prince and the Showgirl with Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh), she befriends Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), an ambitious 23-year-old Third Assistant Director on the set.  As their relationship progresses, Colin’s focus shifts from making his way in the film business to rescuing her from the pressures of celebrity life.  When Monroe’s new husband, playwright Arthur Miller, makes a brief trip to Paris, Clark takes the opportunity to introduce her to the world outside of Hollywood fame.  Based on the true story by Colin Clark, this memoir describes a magical week in which Monroe opens herself up to a stranger and finds in him a confidant and an ally.

The MY WEEK WITH MARILYN Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD bonus features include an audio commentary with director Simon Curtis and a “The Untold Story of an American Icon” featurette.  Note: Special features are subject to change.
