Gwyneth Paltrow is a shining star and plays a faultless dramatic role.

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

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.

Paltrow moves us as Plath, bringing poignant humanity to the character.

Atmospheric, elegant and thoughtful.

Gwyneth Paltrow, who has never made a secret of her obsession with Plath, turns in a worshipfully calculated and awards-worthy performance as her idol.

This is one of the better made and more believable films about poets, one that should be cherished for its rich depiction of its subjects.

This could be very dreary stuff if it weren't for Gwyneth Paltrow, who is pitch perfect as Plath.

Has the requisite dark tone and superb performances, but it feels simplistic in its examination of the tortured mind of a gifted woman

Much of this film plays to the audience's subconscious, forced to deal with the spirals of perverse intertwinement.
November 2, 2003
The film's story is one that presents very little to dramatize, but that little has been dramatized very well.
