Wonderful Way to Spend a Day
25 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent mini series that did a good job stringing together an assortment of Marilyn's life, albeit not all of it. But my, that would be impossible. I think they did a great job at creating a narrative with what they could, and that Kelli Garner was absolutely wonderful. She captured the nuances of Marilyn in a way no other actress has quite been able to.
