Watch: Michelle Williams in 'My Week with Marilyn' trailer

"What must it be like to be the most famous woman on earth?"

That question can only be asked of a few women, and in this case, it is posed for Marilyn Monroe in the just released trailer for the upcoming film "My Week with Marilyn," set during the height of her fame in the late 1950s.


The film, being released by The Weinstein Company, stars Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams as the iconic and deeply troubled Hollywood screen siren. The plot follows Monroe's first trip to London to film "The Prince and the Showgirl," opposite Hollywood legend Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh).

Although Marilyn is the center, the drama is seen through the eyes of Colin Clarke (Eddie Redmayne), whose book the film is based on.  Clarke was one of Olivier's assistants who had a week-long fling with Marilyn away from the film's set in the English countryside.

But with Marilyn's antics known by most, Clarke is warned by those around him to be careful: 'I wouldn't buy the little girl lost act if were you. I think Marilyn knows exactly what she's doing," Olivier tells him.

The film also features Judi Dench (who has never given a bad performance...ever), "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper and Dougray Scott. "My Week with Marilyn" premieres at the New York Film Festival this month, followed by a November 14, 2011 release date in theaters.
