The synopsis follows, “After a traumatic childhood, Norma Jeane Mortenson becomes an actress in the Hollywood of the 1950s and early 1960s. She becomes world famous under the stage name “Marilyn Monroe”, but her on-screen appearances are in stark contrast to the love issues, exploitation, abuse of power, and drug addiction she faces in her private life.”
The film also stars Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Caspar Phillipson, Toby Huss, David Warshofsky, Evan Williams, Xavier Samuel, and Julianne Nicholson.
Blonde will have its limited theatrical release in the United States on September 16, 2022, before beginning to stream on Netflix on September 28.
