On DVD: Lovelace
Ordinary vs. extraordinary. Linda Boreman was the former, but she found herself in the midst of a situation that was very much the latter. Lovelace is both the name Boreman would carry throughout her adult life and the title of the, unfortunately, very ordinary cinematic chronicle of her bizarre career and horrific marriage. While it’s anchored by some fine performances, Lovelace is let down by a screenplay that feels incredibly unmotivated.
