Documentary tribute to Marilyn Monroe from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus (Bobby Fischer Against the World), weaving together newly released outtakes, home movies, photos, and interviews with dramatic re-enactments of Monroe's diary entries and reflections by an all-star cast including Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Lindsay Lohan, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei, Adrien Brody, Hope Davis and Paul Giamatti.
"Half a century after her death, Marilyn Monroe remains one of the quintessential icons of the twentieth century: a woman who seemed to exist solely in and for the public, yet whose real self remained forever elusive; a knowingly artificial creation whose aching vulnerability was all too evident... Liz Garbus draws on never-before-seen personal papers, diaries and letters - and the talents of a remarkable cast - to explore the many facets of the real Marilyn."
