    Amanda Seyfried came onto screen nearly ten years ago, beginning in light comedies and now we are beginning to find her in Oscar-bait films such as this. Unfortunately, Lovelace is a difficult story gone wrong--no matter how gifted Seyfried's performance was.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Nothing interesting that hasnt already been said is shown in this movie. The characterizations are shallow and the movie basically repeats itself at midway point. avoid!!!! amanda seyfried is wasted in this movie! Expand

    If Hallmark or the Living channel made a film about he porn industry, this would be it. Revisionist and highly sanitised, Lovelace is a poor drama lacking the real facts of the decisions that Lovelace made.

    Lovelace is one of those movies based on true events that we don't want or don't need to know about, and besides that, the acting is terrible! The only reason people liked this film is because it shows Amanda Seyfried naked.

    Lovelace tells a difficult story creditably, yet its period detail has the effect of distancing the story, and its heroine remains an enigma.

    Seyfried is fine but has little character depth to work with: Sarsgaard impresses with a more complex character, as does a barely recognisable Sharon Stone as Linda’s bitter mother. If only the whole film were as well-rounded.

    Peter Sarsgaard, with an oozing voice and a wolfish smile, is a terrific creep, and Hank Azaria and Bobby Cannavale have fun overplaying porn-world figures, but the movie, at its center, remains unawakened.
