Familiar territory: celebrity woman with a man beating the crap out of her. We've seen this before in What's Love Got to Do With It and in Star 80. Unfortunately, these movies weren't just earlier than Lovelace; they were stronger.
Star/co-producer Amanda Seyfried is strong in this 'Linda Lovelace' biopic from co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, but she's not quite right, with her gorgeous, goo-goo-eyes looking quite unlike the homelier, less glam Linda.
Amanda Seyfried brings the mythologised Lovelace to life ...a surprisingly touching, extraordinary biopic. It certainly stands with Boogie Nights (1997) and Hardcore (1979) as one of the few good feature films about porn.
