    This movie was outstanding. Thats right, I said it. Outstanding. What this girl went through was horrific. This movie was too underrated and should have been revered more by Hollywood alumns. I was impressed by all of the performances. Knockout cast. I was so into it I was crying 15 minutes after the movie ended. I know this is just an opinion, but I highly recommend this movie for everyone. A piece of history that carries more weight than I ever would have imagined before watching. Kudos to the writer, producers, director, and performers. Thank you for sharing a hard, brutal reality. I am grateful. Expand

    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.
