From the award-winning creators of I, Elizabeth, Austen’s Women, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Dalloway, and The Time Machine.

August 5th, 1962: Monroe as we’ve never seen her before: alone in her bedroom, in dressing gown and underwear; no glitz, no glamour, no masks. Overdosed on pills, the woman behind the icon unravels her remarkable life, telling all, revealing a biting intelligence and an imperfect body, leading us in real time to the very moment of her death.

Written and Directed by Elton Townend Jones. Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.
