Not about Marilyn Monroe, but a much bigger Norma Jean!
Quite simply one of the best documentaries ever made - funny, touching, and quietly, subtly profound. The small town of Oquawka, Illinois, whose previous claim to fame was that Lincoln once slept there, was the site of a bizarre tragedy striking down a giant in the circus world. But the real story is what the town (and one person in particular) did to memorialize the unexpectedly departed celebrity, revealing their true warmth and quirky humor. It is also a love song to small town America that is endangered.
I guarantee that you'll never hear "Candle in the Wind" the same way again.
