Lovelace is structurally sound, telling the popular Hollywood version of events before re-tracing some of its steps and revealing a glimpse of the violence that went on behind the scenes.

Seyfried is remarkable as Linda, showing the woman's duality of hope and fear, acquiescence and anguish, in sequences that require a multitude of conflicting emotions.

What is fascinating about the film is the way the format, showing us the same events twice and from two different perspectives, helps to tell the story: not that porn is evil, but that porn is a lie.

Amanda Seyfried earns her acting stripes here, her brave no holds barred performance completely sheds her Les Miz and Mamma Mia good girl image.

It is unpretentious and moving, and Seyfried is great.
February 1, 2014
Amanda Seyfried acts out of her skin.

Other performances may be more gripping in the moment, but the core of relatable vulnerability and flawed humanity Seyfried brings lends the film a lasting resonance.
October 31, 2013
Co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman corralled a stellar cast that piles on great performances.

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.

There is little doubt that most attention will focus on the relatively small but crucial role of Dorothy, Linda's mother, played with heartbreaking honesty by Sharon Stone

It's voyeuristic, unbelievable and often shocking as it delivers surprises, twists and many elements of interest, including an effective depiction of the times during the sexual revolution

As good as it is, Lovelace oddly avoids further illuminating Boreman, beyond what we already know.
September 4, 2013
It's a somewhat simplistic dichotomy but Amanda Seyfried does a good job managing the contradictions of her character, and her co-stars Sharon Stone and Peter Sarsgaard keep the pace.
August 29, 2013
While sympathetic lacks the nerve to fully detail the injustices she suffered at Trainor's hands.
August 23, 2013
Seyfried is excellent, morphing from naive good-time girl to abused victim to, ultimately, empowered wife and mother.
August 22, 2013
Lovelace tells a difficult story creditably, yet its period detail has the effect of distancing the story, and its heroine remains an enigma ...
August 22, 2013
Amanda Seyfried and Peter Saarsgard are good as the Beauty and Beast of the 1970s porn industry in Lovelace.
August 22, 2013
Engaging, smartly directed biopic with impeccable production design, terrific performances and a superb script that cleverly tells two versions of the same story.
