Blonde – Netflix

Netflix’s upcoming release, Blonde, is a fictionalised presentation of Marilyn Monroe’s life. Based on  Joyce Carol Oates’ novel released in 2000, the film will focus on Monroe’s life, career, and struggle. It is said that the actress had a traumatic childhood and faced several obstacles. However, the beauty of her skill was that she never brought it to the screen.

Monroe earned the name and tag of a superstar in the 1950s and 60s, so much so that her beauty was appreciated, and people were in awe of her. Her name, Norma Jeane Mortenson, was not the one people recognised her by and she used the stage name, Marilyn Monroe.

Reports state that she often portrayed dark characters on screen, and this raised several questions as they spoke about issues like abuse of power, exploitation, and more. Netflix’s upcoming release Blonde talks about these aspects.

Actress Ana de Armas plays the lead role in the film and her portrayal of Monroe has been appreciated by the audience. However, the film overall received a mediocre response. Besides Armas, the film also stars Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Xavier Samuel, and Julianne Nicholson in pivotal roles.

While Blonde was watched first at the 79th Venice International Film Festival on September 8, 2022, the film hit the theatres on September 16, 2022. Critics and the audience at the film festival also lauded the screenplay and direction.
