There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: When the film 'My Week With Marilyn' directed by Simon Curtis, begins we see Marilyn Monroe on a stage singing 'That Ole Black Magic'... That's who I thought it was, anyway.

It actually took me a few seconds before realizing that I was watching not Monroe, but Michelle Williams. That's how good she is in her portrayal of the damaged, insecure, extremely sensual, extremely vulnerable Hollywood icon/sex symbol known as Marilyn Monroe. Or to put it simply, Michelle William's performance blew me away.
