Oscar-nominated documentary director Liz Garbus has focused her inquisitive lens on the greatest celebrity of all time, Marilyn Monroe. The film Love, Marilyn proffers the celebrities of our day reading and quoting Marilyn and other great figures of her time, and in the process provide us with an insight into her ambitions and insecurities.
Celebs.com’s Elliot Kotek chatted with the director at AFCI’s Beyond Cinema Studio presented by Celebs.com at the recent Toronto International Film Festival.
Here’s the official word on the movie (which will be released by HBO):
“Nearly 50 years after her death, two boxes of Marilyn Monroe‘s private writings and musings were discovered in the home of her acting coach. These papers, brought to life in this innovative documentary film by some of our contemporary icons and stars, give us a new understanding of Monroe — revealing her carefully guarded inner life. Featuring Elizabeth Banks, Lindsay Lohan, Evan Rachel Wood, Ben Foster, Uma Thurman, Paul Giamatti, Viola Davis, Jeremy Piven, Ellen Burstyn, Adrien Brody, Marisa Tomei and Glenn Close.”
