( This actor does not look like Marley , brother Bob had a pronounced elongated jaw line and narrower cheek bones . )

I saw Oppenheimer and it made me want to read the book. The book won a pulitzer. I just finished the book and it was so rich and dense that I can't even remember the movie. I have to watch it again. I am always a little suspicious of biopics trying to do too much in too few hours and sometimes caricaturing their subjects. I will see this. I may end up reading more about Bob. It wouldn't be the worst thing.

The actors portrayal is a tad too angry for me, at least in the long preview I saw.

I'm very suspicious of a Hollywood interpretation of someone as complex as Marley. In the low information age, however they present him will become factual in the minds of the lazy consumer.

Timothy White or Stephen Davis' books referenced above are a very good place to learn about the real Marley.

Movie was really good. I'd recommend seeing it on the big screen. No complaints on the movie in my opinion. Well done.
