Based on two books by Colin Clark, it depicts the making of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, which starred Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier. The film focuses on the week in which Monroe spent time being escorted around Britain by Clark, after her husband, Arthur Miller, left the country. It will have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on 9 October 2011.
In the summer of 1956, Colin Clark (Redmayne) works as an assistant on the British set of The Prince and the Showgirl, which stars Laurence Olivier (Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Williams), who is also on honeymoon with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller (Scott). When Miller leaves the country, Clark introduces Monroe to British life and they spend a week together, during which time she escapes from her Hollywood routine and the pressures of work.
