A new movie about Marilyn Monroe is coming!

One of the latest original productions of Netflix, "Blonde" (directed by Andrew Dominik), received the NC-17 category abroad, which means that the film is not intended for viewers under the age of 18.

The director of the film, Andrew Dominik, stated that he expects that "Blonde" will be awarded the NC-17 category. The most convincing reason is that the scenes are extremely picturesque and there is a lot of sex.

It's a heavy film. If the audience doesn't like it, that's their problem. It is not running for public office, it is an NC-17 film about the life of Marilyn Monroe, that is what is expected, isn't it?” - Dominik said.

"Blonde", based on the bestseller of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates (2000), was supposed to be presented to the public in 2019, but production was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Representatives of the streaming giant were supposed to put pressure on editor Jennifer Lame to reduce the excesses contained in the material. The content of the film has been the subject of numerous controversies, including when rumors about the alleged scene of "oral sex during menstruation" leaked to the public, Andrew Dominik described them as "absurd" and "untrue".

Scenes depicting real events have recently become very popular. It is worth mentioning, for example, "The Crown", which takes viewers through decades of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, or the series "Pam and Tommy", which focuses on the relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee and the scandal scene with a sex tape allegedly stolen. In both cases, the people on whose biography the series is based had great reservations about the content of the script.

The royal family wanted to stop filming the "Crown" series, and they stated that the series was dramatized and that the event was fabricated.

Meanwhile, Pamela Anderson completely distanced herself from "Pam and Tommy", announcing that she never will watch the Hulu mini-series. How, then, will "Blonde" deal with the complicated story of the most famous blonde of all time - Marilyn Monroe?

"Blonde" by Joyce Carol Oates was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award - one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world. The author herself has been mentioned for many years as one of the candidates for the Nobel Prize for Literature. The book is quoted as a historical novel, and Oates has repeatedly emphasized that it should not be considered Marilyn's biography.

The monumental work has over 700 pages - the first attempts to adapt the film were made by CBS in 2001, and Marilyn was played by Australian actress Poppy Montgomery. How will Ana de Armas, 34, from Cuba, handle it? As Dominik emphasized, her acting will be the only thing no one will complain about.
