Marilyn Monroe has always been a kind of screen onto which we projected our own fantasies. But thanks to her diaries, we can understand the icon through her own experiences. Liz Garbus’ film reveals Marilyn as a poet, an actor with ambitions of greatness, an abused child, a drug user, a wounded lover. Her words, along with those written by her friends, are read by actors including Elizabeth Banks, Lindsay Lohan, Evan Rachel Wood, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei, Jeremy Piven and Adrien Brody.
