Kelli Garner becomes Marilyn!!
24 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I finally got around to watching this film after letting it sit it on my DVR for 4 months. Going into the film I wasn't quite sure what to expect because not many Lifetime movies are that great. However, Lifetime really hit it out of the ballpark with this one. I've read so much about Marilyn and her life and this movie was accurate to everything I've read about her. I'm usually a little leery when it comes to biopic films because you're never sure how the movie is going to portray the subject and their life. Lifetime nailed it with this one. The casting was perfect as well. Kelli Garner was the perfect choice to play Marilyn. She is the spitting image of Marilyn, and she even sounds like her! Susan Sarandon also did an excellent job as Marilyn's mother, Gladys. With this film, it's a if you're getting to know Marilyn on a personal level and I like that. I have no complaints at all about this film. If it ever comes out on DVD/Blu-ray I will definitely buy it and add it to my film collection. If your a fan of Marilyn Monroe or Old Hollywood, I highly recommend you watch this.
