Washington, 30 (Prensa Latina) Blonde, the biopic about Marilyn Monroe directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Cuban actress Ana de Armas, will be premiered at the 79th edition of the Venice Film Festival that begins tomorrow.

According to critics, the film about the life of that Hollywood and American culture icon is one of the favorites in the competition for the Golden Lion, the highest prize of this Italian film festival, oldest in the world.

In the film, Ana de Armas became not only the character that the American actress was in her lifetime, but she also assumes her existential challenges and personal conflicts.

“The film focuses on the relationship with herself and with that other person, Marilyn, who is both her armor and her greatest threat”, said the director of the film based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates.

The two-hour and 46-minute feature film produced by the American company Netflix will hit theaters on September 28 and will then be streamed on that platform.

In early August, actor Brad Pitt praised the performance of Cuban Ana de Armas in the film, in statements to Entertainment Weekly magazine.

“I think she’s doing great,” Pitt, who is an executive producer on Blonde, said at the premiere of his latest film Bullet Train. Regarding the complexity of the actress’s character, he stated that “hers is a very difficult dress to wear”.

The prominent American actor recalled that the project had been “10 years in development”. “It was impossible for us to get to the finish line until we found Ana,” he said.
