B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 14 JAN. 2012

Michelle Williams, whose stellar performances in Wendy and Lucy, Blue Valentine and Meek's Cutoff, among others, returns with a complex portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the pseudo-biopic, My Week With Marilyn, based on a non-fictional memoir, during Monroe's filming of the 1957 film, The Prince and the Showgirl. Again, Williams enters her character with intricate depth (and she sings in the film!).
