A Hollywood product that exploits sickness.

Plath might have been the stupid cow that Paltrow plays, the stubbornly ambitious, jealous demonbit genius discontent, immune to the ordinary joys of life.

Gwyneth Paltrow is anything but engaging in this rarely interesting look at the life of author Sylvia Plath.

When it's all said and done, Plath had the courage of her convictions, and so does this honest movie.

It lacks an incisive viewpoint and keeps us emotionally at arm's length.

Not the last word on the subject by any means, but it is a solid entry into the canon that sensibly resists beatification or crucifixion of the Ariel poet.

Good as Paltrow is, Sylvia reduces an intensely brilliant, haunted writer into a weepy, morose slacker whose overriding concern is where her husband is at all hours.

Well acted and seriously mounted, but Sylvia the movie is, nevertheless, very boring.
