“Do you know anything about me? The real me? Before her”

She was the most famous movie star in the world, famous for all the wrong reasons: her image, her sex appeal, her frailties and failings; for her love affairs, her lateness on set and her drug dependency. For decades the sensation surrounding her death has eclipsed the sensation of her life. But no one knows what events led up to that fateful night in August 1962 when Marilyn was only 36 years old.Until now.

Description
The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, recognises and investigates the truth behind the make-up to reveal a Marilyn never before seen: alone in only her dressing gown; no glitz, no glamour, no masks. Overdosed on pills, the woman behind the icon drifts back through her life and the memories of those she loved the most. Revealing a frustrated intelligence, she exposes the truth behind her legend, leading us, in real time, to the centre of her psyche, the truth of her being, and the moment of her demise.
