I have been interested in this film for some time now because of all the major acting chops on display. Very glad to finally get a trailer. Some first impressions, it looks gorgeous. The era’s set pieces and fashion will get me in the theatre alone. I will note that Williams does not seem to be doing Monroe’s signature breathy voice. Also, I’m starting to get sick of the emotionally manipulative music at the end of trailers.
Theme wise, it seems to be dealing with similar issues of identity like the iconic Elton John and Bernie Taupin song ‘Candle in the Wind’ about the same woman. I understand putting this at the forefront of the trailer because of its significance in the cultural lexicon, but I hope the film gives me a bit more to chew on.
Trailer after the jump.
