Picks and Pans Review: Norma Jean and Marilyn
It is generally agreed that Marilyn Monroe had a quality that no other star has ever possessed. Mira Sorvino, Academy Award or no, does not have that quality. Neither does Ashley Judd, who plays Marilyn's alter ego, Norma Jean, in a series of weird blackouts. With lots of primping, jiggling, lingerie, bathing suits, swearing, bisexuality and drugs, this grim, leering pseudobiography makes it easier to understand why Joe DiMaggio loathed Hollywood.
