On Thursday April 5 Flicks in the Village will be showing My Week With Marilyn (15). This is the true story of a star-struck boy who falls in love with the biggest celebrity in the world, Marilyn Monroe. 23-year-old Colin Clark was determined to break into the film business and his first job was The Prince and The Showgirl--the film that was set to be the smash hit of the year famously uniting the biggest stars of the day, Marilyn Monroe and Sir Laurence Olivier. On honeymoon in Britain with her new husband, Arthur Miller, Marilyn is excited about the project but quickly becomes desperate to run away from her Hollywood entourage, the pressures of work and the press who hound her. For Marilyn, Colin is a welcome antidote and he offers her everything she craves when, together, they escape the film set to get closer in an idyllic Britain. Academy Award® nominee Michelle Williams stars as Marilyn Monroe and is joined by a stellar cast including Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark, Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier, Dame Judi Dench as Dame Sybil Thorndike, Julia Ormond as Vivien Leigh and Dougray Scott as Arthur Miller.

The film starts at 7:30pm with refreshments served from 7pm. Membership forms are available on the night or you can always pop into the Butchers shop in Pett and grab an application form.
