Seyfried's Lovelace gets a lot of screen time, but rarely to herself. Instead she's there for things to happen to...What does Lovelace tell us about Linda Lovelace that is not already part of the public domain? Not a lot, really.
Lovelace is one of the fluffiest, least substantive biopics I've ever seen, and I am baffled the film made it through the scripting and production phases without anyone ever once bothering to ask "for what exact purpose are we making this movie?"
"Lovelace" becomes too distracted by industry politics and the cultural context of the film's release to provide more than a snapshot of her life either before or after she stepped in front of a camera.
