From Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho) comes The Notorious Bettie Page, a provocative exploration of sexuality and pop culture taking us into the fascinating world of famous pin up girl, Bettie Page. Gretchen Mol plays Page who 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 enthral fans to this day. Depicting Bettie's often accidental journey to celebrity, The Notorious Bettie Page captures a vanished but not entirely unfamiliar America, where sex is a secret obsession that can incite furor at the highest levels of government. In a stylistic tour-de-force, Harron recreates the look and feel of the films of Bettie's 1950s heyday, variously evoking the era's gritty black & white noirs, lush Technicolor melodramas, even Super 8 home movies. We step into the past to follow the life and career of Bettie Page, a quiet, good-natured Southern beauty who found her calling in front of the camera and radiated vitality and joy in every single pose and every costume. Though her fetish tableaux may now appear more quaint than shocking, Bettie Page remains a wonder to behold.
