[ # ] The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe shouldn’t be kept a secret!
May 30th, 2015 under Lifetime

The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe is going to be told tonight and tomorrow at 8p on Lifetime and you don’t want to miss this bioflick!
Tonight’s episode starts off with her visiting a doctor and telling him all about her life. Marilyn Monroe (Kelli Garner) starts from the beginning of her life when she used to go by Norma Jean. You see a young girl taken away from her mother (Susan Sarandon) who is mentally ill. The dreamer goes from foster home to foster home, until one day she is married off to save her from the system. As soon as she can, she tries to get into the movie business. The rest of tonight shows you how hard she had to work to become the actress we know her as today.
Tomorrow, we learn about her love life with Joe DiMaggio (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Arthur Miller (Stephen Bogaert) and the Kennedys. While looking at the men that were in love with her, you start to see her slipping away and becoming dependent on drugs an alcohol. Those substances lead to her early demise at the early age of 36.
Marilyn’s story has been told time and time again, but this one is different than the rest. I feel like in this one you get to know her the best. I think because it focused so much on the first part of her life as compared to just focusing as her life as a star. The other thing that makes this movie so lovable is that is exactly how Kelli Garner plays her. Monroe was loved and I think Garner captured that essence of her the most out of all of the other actresses who have played her in the past.
Lifetime has been plagued with some really hideous biopics in recent years, and The Secret Life of Marilyn looks to be turning things around for the network.
