'My Week With Marilyn' is a movie featuring Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams as sex-symbol Marilyn Monroe and is scheduled to have its world premiere at the New York Festival Film in October.

The film is based on a diary kept by writer Colin Clark while working with Monroe in the UK. It was the summer of 1956 and Marilyn and Sir Laurence Olivier were filming 'The Prince and the Showgirl'. The movie was actually shot when the 50's star was on her honeymoon with husband Arthur Miller.

'My Week With Marilyn' stars Kenneth Branagh as Olivier, Dougray Scott as Miller and Dame Judi Dench, along with Michelle Williams. The film will premiere on October 9 and will be released in theaters worldwide on November 4.

The Program Director for The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Richard Pena, talked about the way Williams embraces the role and turns the character into a complex personality: 'After seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams'.

So far, Michelle Williams has been nominated for two Oscars, for her roles in 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Blue Valentine'.
