User Reviews

virtues, sins...
3 July 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

its virtues - the good intentions to present a realistic portrait of her life. reminds of memorable scenes. the admirable work of Susan Sarandon. the atmosphere. Emma Watson. the desire of Kelli Garner to be Marlyn Monroe and the run to give the impression to be the perfect choice for act she ( voice, walk, physical appearance, gestures). its sins - the title who seems escaped from a scandal newspaper because the revelation are not news and it is bizarre to pretend present a complex biography in each of its details. the ambition to tell all in a mini series and the taste of improvised puzzle. the hard work of Kelli Garner to convince the public than she is the best Marlyn. the ambition is real admirable and the result far to be bad but , scene by scene, it becomes strange. a beautiful series. that is its basic good point. for remind. for rediscover. and for give new shadows to a myth.
