[Ziff] has a breezy nature and openness in front of the camera,
 which means we see her at her best and worst.

Viewers will get a fairly frank look inside a profession where huge financial success doesn't require much more, as even Ziff's mother admits, than being "pretty and on time."

A priceless primer on the flip side of strutting up the catwalk designed for impressionable young female minds fantasizing about becoming the next ingénue of the moment.

The result is a rather revealing film, not only about Sara and the choices she's made, but about the industry itself, with its contrasting pleasures and pressures.

This absorbing, highly personal documentary gives a stripped-down, inside look at a glamorous business, which can often be anything but.

A terrific behind the scenes look at the not too glamorous world of runway models made by an uncommonly perceptive model and her filmmaker boyfriend.

A fruitless portrait of commonplace backstage reveals and indulgent mugging.

Worthless as social commentary and clueless as a film.

I have a lot of questions about models, but none is answered in this film by catwalker Sara Ziff and her boyfriend Ole Schell.

This doc is an 82-minute series of nonbombshells: Models are pampered! They have body-image issues! And sometimes they have to contend with the unwanted sexual advances of male photographers!
