THE NOTORIOUS BETTIE PAGE (Mary Harron, 2005)

**½
USA
A slightly perky, slightly flat, offensively inoffensive biopic. Gretchen Mol rarely shifts from an expression of blind, sunny optimism, and when she does, it isn't to add any kind of shade or dimension (she can only muster a babyish pout). You won't come across much more insight here than you would in Page's bondage folio.
