A new four-part docuseries on Marilyn Monroe- her life, struggles, but especially how she is a role model and needs to be considered for more than just a 'blonde bombshell.' While the series has yet to release (until January 16th and 9:00 P.M. ET/PT), from what I've seen it looks very accurate and well-based.
According the trailer, this series will take a new stand and take on Marilyn that unfortunately many other documentaries/series forget or leave out. It will focus on how Marilyn broke out of the box of what a woman should and shouldn't do- doing it with grace and integrity.
Furthermore, the docuseries by CNN will be pretty much solely from women's perspective. The narration is by actress Jessica Chastain, along with many interviews from young female actresses, and others who personally knew Marilyn- including an all female editing team (Marilyn would be proud!). I'm very excited to see this perspective, for I feel as though we have seen in many views of Marilyn's life from men and not enough from women.
Now, the trailer!
I mean this trailer is SO well done!
I hope that this (hopefully and likely) accurate series will welcome many more fans to the community and I can hardly wait to snuggle up and watch this Sunday night- I just know it will leave me anxiously waiting for the next episode!
Thank you for reading! It truly makes me so happy and I'm so glad your here!
Hold a good thought for Marilyn today! ♡
