Posted Mon Feb 13, 2012 at 12:00 PM PST by

One of the best reviewed films of 2011 is coming to Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is prepping 'My Week with Marilyn' for Blu-ray on March 13.

During Marilyn Monroe’s (Oscar® Nominee Michelle Williams) first trip to London to film 'The Prince and the Showgirl,' with Sir Laurence Olivier (Oscar® Nominee Kenneth Branagh), she befriends Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), an ambitious 23 year-old production assistant on the set. As their relationship progresses Colin’s focus shifts from making his way in the film business to rescuing her from the pressures of celebrity life. When Monroe’s new husband, playwright Arthur Miller, makes a brief trip to Paris, Clark takes the opportunity to introduce her to the world outside of Hollywood fame. Based on the true story by Colin Clark, this memoir describes a magical week in which Monroe opens herself up to a stranger and finds in him a confidant and an ally.

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include The Untold Story of an American Icon and Audio commentary with director Simon Curtis.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
