Guardian

"My Week With Marilyn is light fare: it doesn't pretend to offer any great insight, but it offers a great deal of pleasure and fun..."

Time Out

"It's pedestrian in most ways, but Williams - with a little help from friends in the lighting, camera, hair and make-up departments - lends it a touch of magic amid the nonsense."

Empire

"At moments hilarious and others touching, it's a sweet, slight affair, more pretty pageant than pithy biographical drama."
