something missing

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

"First viewing - Aug. 5th I've known who Bettie Page is for many years now, but never took the time to find out much about her beyond the images she's most known for. This is very much a standard biopic in construction, but it's helped greatly by the writers & director having respect for the subject as well as being female. A male-guided film could likely have gone the wrong way, and thankfully that didn't happen. Gretchen Mol does a superb job of capturing the essence of Ms. Page and bringing h"
