This intimate documentary about one of the world’s most recognized sex symbols features the subject telling her story in her own words, thanks to interviews filmmaker Mark Mori taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. Bettie Page describes her journey from an impoverished Southern family through her career as a scandalous 1950s pin-up model, her sudden retirement at the peak of her modeling career and subsequent bouts of mental illness, before resurfacing in the 90s, unaware of her cult status. The film shows how Page’s exuberant sexuality and provocative poses set the stage for the 60s sexual revolution and why, for stars like Katy Perry and Beyoncé and new generations of fans, she remains an irresistible style icon.
