Netflix’s Marilyn Monroe Biopic ‘Blonde’ Earns NC-17 Rating

The Andrew Dominik-directed flick is the first movie Netflix has produced to receive the rare rating.

Netflix’s upcoming film Blonde has become the first movie produced by the streaming giant to receive an NC-17 rating, indicating that it’s going to be a raunchy ride.

NC-17 ratings are exceedingly rare and generally only given to films with excess amounts of nudity or graphic sex.

Netflix has streamed controversial NC-17 movies in the past, such as Blue is the Warmest Color and 365 Days,

but this marks the first time the company has produced a flick that has resulted in the extreme rating.

In the case of Blonde, though, the NC-17 is not entirely surprising. After all,

the film gives us a look at the life of beloved actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe

who was well-known for pushing boundaries during the 1950s and 1960s.
