Drawing on never-before-seen personal papers, diaries and letters, Academy-award nominated director Liz Garbus (Bobby Fischer Against The World, The Farm: Angola, USA) works with acclaimed actresses to evoke the multiple aspects of the real Marilyn - passion, ambition, soul-searching, power and fear – in an absorbing and astonishing portrait. These documents, brought to life in this film by some of our contemporary icons and stars, give us a new and revelatory understanding of Monroe, revealing her carefully guarded inner life.
