The pin-up sensation that shocked a nation!
From Mary Herron (I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho) comes The Notorious Bettie Page, a provocative exploration of sexuality, religion and pop culture as she takes us into the 1950's and the fascinating world of famous pin up girl, Bettie Page. In an incandescent performance, Gretchen Mol stars as Page, who grew up in a conservative religious family in Tennessee and became a photo model sensation in 1950's 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 enthrall today.
As it depicts 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.
Audio commentary with Mary Harron, Guineviere Turner and Gretchen Mol
