“Blonde” on Netflix a Marilyn Monroe Movie!

Hello everyone, Today I’m taking a look at the Netflix movie about Marilyn Monroe, “Blonde”. I have always been a fan of Marilyn Monroe and knew there was a darker side to the beautiful, glamorous, American icon that many still adore today. “Blonde” based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates. The movie starts off in her troubled childhood where she ends up in an orphanage. Although she always looked glamorous on screen backstage was a different story.

Monroe struggled with her past. It put a strain on many of her relationships including her 3 marriages. Ana de Armas does a great job playing the always elegant Marilyn Monroe, and the behind scenes Norma Jean. Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean seem to be two completely different people. Monroe‘s life was full of fans, money, and glamour.

Norma Jean’s life was full of hate, resentment, and the need for a simple life. In a different time, Norma Jean may have been able to get help and would have been able to live a normal life, but in her time she hid her life behind the glamour of Marilyn Monroe. Overall this was a good movie and definitely worth checking out. Have a great week everyone.
