Chris Underwood’s review:
Enjoyable with a fantastic performance by Gretchen Mol in the central role, this is ultimately rather a let down because it is far more keen to show us cute 'living' magazine fronts and silliness during the Irving Klaw bondage sessions than give us any real idea of what life was like for Bettie Page. For me there was also far too much of the church here and no hint at all of any latter life mental problems. But it is pretty, the mix of b/w and colour works and the amateur photo shoots most effective.
