Short Film Misfit M.
Directed by Sarah Hempinstall, Austin Ball
Produced by Allie Dunbar, Paige Locke
Cast: Paige Locke

Documenting four days in 1961 in which Marilyn Monroe was unknowingly admitted to the psychiatric ward of a New York clinic by her own female psychiatrist, only managing to escape thanks to threats made by ex-husband Joe DiMaggio. Shortly thereafter while recovering in New York Hospital, Monroe wrote a letter. With 100% of the film's screenplay taken directly from it, 'Misfit M.' sheds light on a chapter of Monroe's life from a completely untampered point-of-view. 'Misfit M.' lives in a trance; a mirror of Monroe's health at the time. At moments scattered, nostalgic, and bitter, Marilyn's words portray a woman who was incredibly misunderstood, lonely, and abused but also incredibly smart, insightful, thoughtful, and at times playful. In addition to the never-ending intrigue of Miss Monroe, 'Misfit M.' is also a window into the abuse and mistreatment of both mental health and of power in a corrupt system. Thanks to the cooperation of Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles and the blessing of the current owner of Marilyn's letter, this story has now been taken off the page.
