Liz Garbus’ documentary feature LOVE, MARILYN is a startlingly intimate and revealing portrait of arguably the most famous female actor ever to grace the silver screen. With unprecedented access to Monroe’s never-before-seen personal correspondence, diary entries, and archival footage, LOVE, MARILYN traces the beginning of the legend, from Norma Jeane Mortenson to sexy starlet to American icon, through the desperate final year of her too-short life. Featuring Viola Davis, Marisa Tomei, Glenn Close, Adrien Brody, and many more celebrated actors, Garbus’ film celebrates the tenacity, sensitivity, and beauty of Marilyn Monroe on the 50th anniversary of her death.
The Hamptons International Film Festival is honored to present LOVE, MARILYN as the Opening Night Film of the 20th Anniversary Film Festival.
Liz Garbus was born and raised in New York City and graduated from Brown University. She co-directed the documentary THE FARM: ANGOLA, USA (98), which won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize.
After the premiere, Industry and members of the press attended the opening night party at the East Hampton Point in East Hampton.
