something missing

The movie shows the ups and downs of Bettie Page’s life.

The actors are good by my standards.

The script is much too predictable to my liking.

This is still worthy of note if you’re into movies covering the 1950s era. I just felt something was missing to really be an attention-grabbing film.

Although Gretchen Mol puts in a pretty decent and believable performance in the title role, the film itself is a drab and unsatisfying portrait of a life that could definitely not be accused of being either.

I saw it because I just wanted to know something about Bettie Page. I was unsatisfied because the story is distracted with the vintage look, the debate around pornography, and losts Bettie's character

Biopics Worth Watching (17 movies items)

" My favorite thing about this film is seeing the actors actually do what they're paid to; Act. Most Biopics that are done on low budgets tend to have actors that don't try & don't care. In this, mostly everyone did the opposite. Especially the lead. She was the closest thing I've seen to a Bettie look-a-like in a long time. Granted, she was wearing a wig & probably contacts. But she still did her job in the most spot-on way possible. I didn't like that it stopped where it did. I would have lik"

" In an era of sexual repression Bettie Page got out the whips and chains, but there's more to her biopic than the kink you've seen on posters flaunting the iconic pin-up. Gretchen Mol delivers an epic performance as Page, who, didn't really understand the impact her pictures had in a time when sexual repression and censorship fought with freedom. She challenged the establishment, but almost inadvertently. For Bettie, it was just a good time playing dress up. The story of America's"
