This fictional portrait of Marilyn Monroe (Ana de Armas) boldly reimagines the tumultuous private life of the Hollywood legend — and the price she paid for fame.

Based on a bestselling novel from five-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde is the boldly reimagined private story of one of Hollywood's most enduring icons, Marilyn Monroe. The film is a fictional portrait of the model, actress and singer during the 50s and 60s, told through the modern lens of celebrity culture. From her volatile childhood, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements, Blonde blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves.

Written and directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), the film boasts a cast led by Ana de Armas and featuring Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams. The original score is by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
