Zee Studio to celebrate Woman's Day with special movies

Zee's English movie channel Zee Studio has lined up two special flicks to air on Woman's Day, 8 March. The channel will air the Reese Witherspoon starrer Legally Blonde at 9 pm, followed by the Mira Sorvino - Ashley Judd starrer Norma Jeanmarilyan at 11 pm.

The Legally Blonde plot is the usual midlevel commercial comedy mishmash: a clear, easily digested and wildly implausible concept accessorized with hit-or-miss bits of physical and verbal humor, a fizz of light love trouble, and a barrage of huggy, uplifting moments at the end. "Legally Blonde" is made almost worthwhile by Reese Witherspoon, who may be the Doris Day of our drab age. She plays Elle Woods, a Los Angeles sorority queen who follows her undeserving boyfriend to Harvard Law School, where she turns out not to be the airhead everyone mistakes her for. Indeed, Elle — not to mention Ms. Witherspoon — seems a good deal smarter than the movie itself, which stumbles when it should accelerate and turns gooey when it should be sharp.

Norma Jeanmarilyan employs Ashley Judd and Mira Sarvino to portray two sides of a very troubled woman. Before Marilyn Monroe became the most well-known sex goddess of her time, she was the dark-haired and extremely ambitious Norma Jean Mortenson, willing to use and bed anyone to become a Hollywood star. Ultimately, plastic surgery, a breathier voice, and a name change transformed Norma Jean into Marilyn Monroe. Movie roles, fame and sex symbol status soon followed, but her personal life was a wreck. However, "Marilyn" never lost touch with "Norma Jean," who tried to guide her career and personal life. Norma Jean, unhappy with what "Marilyn" had done with their life, berated and advised her alter ego for better AND for worse. Only in death would the two personalities be truly reconciled.
