One of the most anticipated titles at the upcoming Venice Film Festival is Blonde. A biopic of Hollywood screen icon, Marilyn Monroe, based on Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 novel of the same name. tagline. And the headliner will be the rising star, Ana de Armas, who has given some compelling performances in Sergio, Knives Out and The Gray Man.

Blonde director Andrew Dominik had a teaser. He told Vulture: “It’s a movie that definitely has a morality to it. But it’s swimming in very ambiguous waters, because I don’t think it’s going to be as easy as people want it to be… There’s something in it to offend anyone.” It’s going to be critical of American sacred cows, and “it includes Kennedy Marilyn reportedly had a torrid affair with. Not only this, she is also alleged to have had a relationship with the president’s younger brother, Robert, the then Attorney General, the second most powerful person in the US.

Ana De Armas told Netflix Dominik’s “ambitions were very clear from the start: to present a version of Marilyn Monroe’s life through her lens. He wanted the world to experience what it really felt like not to be alone.” Marilyn Monroe, but also Norma Jeane (the star’s real name). I thought that was the most daring, unabashed and feminist take on her story I had ever seen.”

Ana, the Cuban-Spanish actress, said she had a hard time preparing for the role, which would have gone to Jessica Chastain and Noami Watts in the early stages of Netflix planning.

Ana claimed she had to go bald every day on set to “get Monroe’s signature platinum hair, I had to do this every day, because of the blonde wigs,” she said in an interview with Byrdie. blond from gold to real platinum, so for these wigs that are beautifully made, you can’t have anything dark underneath, so we had to do a bald cap every day from my forehead to around my whole head.

It wasn’t just the physical appearance that the actor needed to get it right; she also had to get into Monroe’s main room. “She’s been through a lot of things that weren’t easy at the time — it wouldn’t even be easy now. I was lucky enough to have months to prepare. Usually we don’t have that luxury — we usually have to rush into it.” project and making it along the way, but for that one I really had time to study. There’s so much material about her, so much to watch and listen to. It’s incredible,” Ana added.

The film, which hits Netflix on September 23, also stars Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.

Blonde will no doubt be a huge success as Monroe is “not dead” and she has been kept alive by her fascinating personality. Away from the camera and flashing flashlights, she made waves. She was much more than the tabloid quip of “sex bomb.” She did a lot of exercise many, many years before this became popular. She was a voracious reader, with a fondness for Dostoevsky in particular. As early as 1950, studio managers warned her not to read politically radical books. Before the decade was up, she was bold enough to marry playwright Arthur Miller, at the time when he was under investigation for his flirtation with communism. She supported the nascent civil rights movement. She was a founding member of Sane’s Hollywood branch, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy.

And it’s only Princess Diana who matches Monroe on the popularity charts, and that’s Marilyn for you. And maybe Dominik will add even more to give the memory of the Hollywood diva a lasting glow.
