Blonde is adapted from Joyce Carol Oates's 2000 historical fiction novel Blonde directed by Andrew Dominik.
The film is begins with a quick portrayal of Monroe’s violent and lonely childhood and then zooms in on her rise to become the ‘s3xpot’ of Hollywood.
Marilyn Monroe is Rated NC-17 (No One Seventeen and Under Admitted) for some s3xual content.
NC-17 is the highest rating in the MPA film rating system assigned to films with content to be only suitable for ages 18 and older.
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.
Ana de Armas is in the lead role of the film and producer is Brad Pitt.
Blonde is facing backlash for masquerading as a biopic when it's more of a loose retelling that exploits Monroe and her trauma.
The criticisms of Blonde are further compounded by Dominik's inability to clearly convey his intentions with the film.
