The blonde bombshell returns: Andrew Dominik's take on Marilyn Monroe


Director and screenwriter Andrew Dominik's image-fuelled adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates's novel "Blonde" is now available on Netflix. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why what the director has called "an emotional nightmare fairy tale" is a powerful immersion into the circumstances of Marilyn Monroe, a performer who was anything but a so-called dumb blonde.

We also take a look at Ruben Östlund's satire on the high seas as this year's Palme d'Or winner, "Triangle of Sadness", hits French screens.

Plus, Virginie Efira and Roschdy Zem star in a touching tale of modern family dynamics, as French director Rebecca Zlotowski considers motherhood from a different angle in "Other People's Children".
