The movie was wonderful. Michelle Williams shines as Marilyn Monroe and it's always a amazing to watch Kenneth Branagh on screen. I had the pleasure of doing an exclusive interview with him as well, where I found out who he'd like to play him in 30 years if there ever was a film for "My Week With Michelle".

What a great piece thank you, fascinating intellect that Branagh. Adore his screen adaptation of Hamlet, should keep that play fresh for another 400 years guaranteed.

I saw "Wallander" for the first time just a few days ago, and found it riveting. I've been a fan of Branagh since Henry V and Much Ado, and I found his portrayal of the introspective, driven Swedish detective psychologically compelling. There are touches of subtle humor in the character, too, in spite of its darkness. I really enjoyed this interview, especially the insights into the dynamic between Olivier (one of my actor-heroes) and Marilyn Monroe when they worked together.
