Get ready to see a new side of Norma Jeane.
In "Blonde," which premiered last week at Venice International Film Festival, Ana de Armas ("Blade Runner 2049") takes on the bombshell big-screen starlet, better known to millions as Marilyn Monroe. The awards hopeful is directed by Andrew Dominik ("The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford") and streams on Netflix Sept. 28 after arriving in select theaters Friday.
Here's what you need to know about the nearly three-hour film, which Dominik likened to "Citizen Kane" and "Raging Bull" in an interview with Collider, and has already drawn controversy for its NC-17 rating.
