‘My Week with Marilyn’

Starring: Michelle Williams,

Eddie Redmayne

Director: Simon Curtis

Rated: R

Based on the memoir of Colin Clark, who was a 23-year old production assistant on a movie when he met Marilyn Monroe in 1956, this is faithful recreation of the era and the iconic star, thanks to a stunning portrayal by Michelle Williams.

Recently two phenomena have arisen in national politics, one the Tea Party and the other the Occupy Wall Street movement. In many ways, both represent shortcomings of too many American citizens. These shortcomings may be the reason that our national government does not seem to be working like it should. They also may be the reason too many Americans don’t like the politicians who currently represent us.

The spirit of giving is falling upon us as the holiday season is finally in sight. It’s the time for spending quality hours with loved ones, both friends and family, enjoying hearty meals and seasonal treats (and the process of preparing them), dragging decorations and lights from the attic to adorn the Christmas tree and home, and last but not least, spending hours scurrying to the perfect gift for said loved ones.

If this year’s Thanksgiving recipes are seeming a little outdated and bland, or if dinnertime around the house could use some sprucing up, Beaumont has an event to help with that.
