‘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.


Sit and pick a while or chow down and be on your way. Sartin’s West, the name synonymous in Southeast Texas with fresh quality seafood, offers all-you-can-eat specials for lunch (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.), as well as dinner with a wide selection of individual meals.

Located at 1990 Interstate 10 S., this locally owned restaurant is where they stack ’em high – crabs, that is.


Establishing a sense of place is as important to an Alexander Payne movie as the complex characters he crafts. Five years ago it was the wine country of “Sideways,” and before that the plain-spoken Midwest in “About Schmidt.” For his latest film, Payne uses the backdrop of Hawaii, with all its lush landscapes and island sensibilities, but as the main character Matt King (George Clooney) narrates in the beginning, just because it seems like paradise doesn’t mean its residents don’t have problems.


Have a good time and good food every night of the week at Starvin Marvin’s Bar and Grill.
