Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Worthless as social commentary and clueless as a film.
Fresh: Viewers will get a fairly frank look inside a profession where huge financial success doesn't require much more, as even Ziff's mother admits, than being "pretty and on time."
Rotten: I have a lot of questions about models, but none is answered in this film by catwalker Sara Ziff and her boyfriend Ole Schell.
I am currently a model and watched this film to maybe see what other models experienced and so on. The film is very true to modeling world and I thought it was interesting. Would definitely recommend watching to anyone who is looking for a career as a model or just wants more info about the industry
What an inspiring documentary. I really loved Sara Ziff. She's an inspiration for many models and women in the world!
