Blonde is a reimagining of the life of Marilyn Monroe from the director of Killing Them Softly and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. The upcoming drama stars Ana De Armas as Marilyn and has made headlines for its NC-17 rating, which seems to indicate some pretty steamy scenes.
The official synopsis describes the movie as follows:
Ana de Armas is Marilyn Monroe in Blonde, only on Netflix 9/23. From director Andrew Dominik, and based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde boldly reimagines the complicated life of icon Marilyn Monroe. Blurring the lines of fact and fiction, the film artfully explores the tension between her public and private life.
Blonde premieres September 23 on Netflix.
