Don’t Cry For Marilyn (Film Thoughts: Marilyn)

MV5BNzBlMGI5NzEtY2E4YS00NGY5LTk0MTAtZGUwMzA3N2Y4MjViXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMDA5NjIzMg@@._V1_SY1000_SX700_AL_‘Marilyn’ is that kind of movie that will make you think, and will probably make you angry, and its ending will definitely shock you. Directed by Martin Rodriguez Redondo, it is the story of Marco (Walter Rodriguez) who lives with his family of ranch hands in rural Argentina. He is seventeen years old, and i discovering his sexual orientation. His world is small, and has to fit within its restrictive norms. Most days he is stoic but he fully comes into himself during Carnival where he wears a dress and has a chance to be ‘himself.’ The film is on the short side, but it packs a lot, and I was engrossed instantly. Rodriguez is fantastic, and you will empathize with his character for the most part, even as the final scene will see a drastic shift in him.
