Fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe continues to beguile and bewilder. Smart, witty, gorgeous, frightened, insecure; she was nothing if not the sum of her many contradictions. Oscar-winning director Liz Garbus offers Marilyn fans something they might have thought impossible – a fresh perspective on the woman and the icon. Drawing on never previously seen personal papers, diaries and letters, Garbus invites an astonishing range of performers to enact Marilyn’s words, each of them bringing something distinctive to their interpretation. Outtakes, home movies, photos and fresh interviews all contribute to this intimate evocation of an unforgettable life.
