What see from 28 September to 4 October on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple Tv+, Now and other streaming platforms.


Blonde – from September 28th

Presented at the Venice Film Festival in the clamor for some very strong sex scenes and for the ease with which he imagines and reinvents Marilyn Monroe’s private life, here is finally the most awaited film of the moment: “Blonde”. Based on Joyce Carol Oates’ book (which she argues should be considered “a work of literary fiction”), Andrew Dominik’s film traces Monroe’s often dramatic and desperate existence. From her mother’s mental illness (who abandoned her) to the harassment suffered by her producers, from her planetary success to her relationship with President Kennedy, up to her tragic death, shrouded in her mystery. Always drawing a fundamental distinction, as the good protagonist Ana de Armas explains: «There was a girl named Norma Jeane. And then there was Marilyn, the character he had invented to make the world love him. And to defend themselves.”
