Blonde starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe was given an 18+ rating, and director Andrew Dominik didn’t seem to be expecting that at all.
Blondethe film on Marilyn Monroe starring Ana de Armasearned an unexpected rating for director, Andrew Dominik, who didn’t believe his film could even come forbidden to minors.
As Variety reports, in fact, the MPAA (Motion Pictures Association of America) has assigned the rating NC-17 (No One Seventeen and Under Admitted / no one under 17 is allowed in the room) and the director does not seem to agree very much. with this estimate. “I was surprised. I thought we were back, even if briefly, in the previous range” He admitted “But I think it’s natural when you have a group of men and women sitting at the table talking about sexual behavior, that maybe men care what women think.”
“We live in strange times. They are not representations of a happy sexuality. It is a question of representing ambiguous situations. And Americans are really weird when it comes to sexual behavior, don’t you think? I do not know why. [Dopotutto] they make more porn than anywhere else in the world“.
“If Blonde had come out a few years ago, close to the #MeToo boom, it would have been an expression of all that stuff“continued Dominik”But in the period we are in at the moment, I think, people are quite uncertain about the various limits. This is definitely a film with a certain morality. But it is sailing in rather ambiguous waters because I don’t think it is something prepackaged and with sharp lines as people might want. Everyone may find something offensive to them in it“.
