The screenwriter and director of the film, Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James, Killing Them Softly, Mindhunter), previously told Collider:
“The whole idea of ’Blonde’ was to detail a childhood drama and then show the way that drama divides adults into public and private.. And how the adult sees the world through the lens of that childhood drama, and it’s kind of a story of a person whose rational image of the world is overwhelmed by his unconscious one, and he uses the iconography of Marilyn Monroe.”
“It’s a tragedy. It’s kind of like an unwanted girl who becomes the most wanted woman in the world and has to deal with all the desire that is directed at her, and how confusing it is.. It’s kind of a nightmare. It’s about being in a car with no brakes. It just goes faster and faster and faster.”
The filmmaker describes Blonde as:
“A film for all the unloved children in the world. It’s like ‘Citizen Kane’ and ‘Raging Bull’ had a daughter”.
Blonde is produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon, and Scott Robertson.
Blonde will premiere on Netflix on September 23, 2022. The trailer and official poster of the titled Blonde in our country below:
