Synopsis

During her memorable career, Hollywood movie icon Marilyn Monroe worked hard to create her legendary public persona. But the careful manufacturing of this image meant the real Marilyn remained hidden to almost everyone. In this moving documentary tribute, director Liz Garbus draws on Marilyn’s recently discovered personal papers, diaries and letters to reveal the complex, flesh-and-blood woman beneath her glamorous facade. What makes the film particularly interesting is its creative presentation of these private writings: with excerpts read out by modern-day stars to animate the actress’s thoughts and words. Archival footage and recollections from friends, colleagues and experts add further colour, producing an intimate examination of Marilyn’s life and legacy.
