The Notorious Bettie Page
Mary Harron fixes her gaze on the figure of fifties pin-up queen Bettie Page (a bodacious Gretchen Mol), following her from Nashville to New York; from modelling, to nude photography, to posing for sado-masochistic fetish pictures.

In keeping with its subject, The Notorious Bettie Page is principally a work of gorgeous surfaces; with a lightness of touch, it offers moments of delectable visual beauty and joie de vivre - not least of which are provided by Mol posing with convincing enthusiasm.
