I've never watched the whole thing. When it came out, I think it was rated too high for me to see it. I'm pretty sure I read the book. I know everyone was talking about it. What I did see left me with the same impressions: Rosemary was so passive. I disliked Mia Farrow for seeming to be so passive but of course, that was acting. And part of the set up was that everyone in on the conspiracy was just so....compelling and seductive, although it seemed very unlikely to me. And horrific. But I can tell you that when you are pregnant, you are beset by all kinds of offers and advice, usually well meaning but some of it...unwelcome.
