As per Netflix the film “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”.
The film also features Adrien Brody and Bobby Cannavale who essay the roles of Monroe’s late husbands. Blonde is based on the historical fiction book of the same name written by Joyce Carol Oates. The upcoming film is directed by Andrew Dominik, popular for his work on films such as Chopper and Killing Them Softly. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon and Scott Robertson have produced the film, which has Christina Oh as its executive producer.
