A flawless biopic!!

First of all, for a movie that takes place in the porn industry, this movie was surprisingly tame. There was barely any nudity and all the sexual content were off screen overall. Now that's out of the way, Lovelace was a great biopic and a great character study in general. Seyfried's performance was truly Oscar worthy and the emotional weight of her performance truly resonated with our family. Her motivations were clear and her personality was likable. Because of the emotional distress her character goes through, this movie should be suitable for 13 and up.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
