Story


From Mary Harron ("I Shot Andy Warhol," "American Psycho") comes "The Notorious Bettie Page," a provocative exploration of sexuality, religion and pop culture as she takes us into the 1950s and the fascinating world of famous pin-up girl, Bettie Page. In an incandescent performance, Gretchen Mol stars as Bettie Page, who grew up in a conservative religious family in Tennessee and became a photo model sensation in 1950s New York.

Bettie's legendary fetish poses made her the target of a Senate investigation into pornography, and transformed her into an erotic icon who continues to enthrall fans to this day.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..doesn't probe very deeply into Page's bizarre mixture of exhibitionism and piety..”
by David Denby [The New Yorker]
“..a thesis movie that aims for the mind, but never captures Bettie's soul..”
by Jeremiah Kipp [Slant Magazine]
“..more than just a tasty morsel of eye candy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
