Overview

A mother once neglected as child but possessed of a heart overflowing with love grows increasingly despondent as her beloved child begins to claim his independence in director Kevin Bacon's adaptation of Victoria Redel's best-selling novel. If loving too much were a crime, well-meaning but overbearing mother Emily Kyra Sedgwick would be spending life behind bars with no hope of parole. When Emily was a child, her parents were deeply in love with one another but tragically indifferent to their affection-starved daughter. Now a grown adult with a deep-rooted desire to bear a child, Emily goes to desperate lengths to conceive before eventually giving birth to an exceptionally gifted boy whom she names Paul. Emily's devotion to Paul burns brighter than a thousand suns as she creates a wondrous world of books, music, art, and games to share with her growing child, but her ever more desperate attempts to preserve the purity of their relationship reach a frantic fever pitch as a kindhearted local man opens his life to the pair and Paul prepares for his first year of school.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Actor Kevin Bacon directs and also appears in this low-key adaptation of Victoria Redel’s novel about a mother’s obsessive love for her son. Loverboy, in fact, is fully a family affair: Bacon’s wife, Kyra Sedgwick (star of the hit series The Closer), stars as single mom Emily Stoll, and he employs the couple’s daughter, Sosie Bacon, in scenes depicting Emily as a ten-year-old. The narrative focuses on Stoll and her relationship with Paul (Dominic Scott Kay), the six-year-old son whom she showers with attention and advantage. But her monomaniacal efforts backfire when the boy understandably demands his independence. Although thinnish in plot, Loverboy abounds in sharply observed characters and terrific performances, beginning with those of Kay and Sedgwick. The former has an endearing onscreen presence, while Sedgwick makes Emily sympathetic even when she’s engaging in seemingly monstrous behavior. The supporting players -- including Matt Dillon, Oliver Platt, Campbell Scott, and an unbilled Sandra Bullock -- contribute brief but memorable turns to a small film that nonetheless leaves a big impression.

    Posted October 1, 2010

    This is a commendable effort from a first time Hollywood director.

    I was expecting a great movie from Kevin Bacon. The movie is OK, This novel turned motion picture debut by Kevin has all the ingredients of an interesting and moving film. Unfortunately these ingredients seem to fade away slowly as the film progresses. Kyra Sedgwick who not only acts terrifically throughout the film, but also narrates it as well. Her character, a woman obsessed with having a child, and keeping it to herself forever, loses its flavor as it becomes more and more ridiculous. The small boy played by Dominic Scott Kay, should have been either re-cast or re-shot several times. His artificial deliveries take away from the seriousness of Sedgwicks maternal character again and again, and seem to make the film comical at times when it should not be. She's that crazy because of her creation, and we learn from flashback scenes, that her parents (Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei) were really ''different'' and she wanted her neighbor (Sandra Bullock) to be her mother. I will say that Kyra Sedgewick shows a great range of emotions and in certain parts, she has a strong resemblance to a younger Glenn Close. Mat Dillon, as a love interest, didn’t work well into this screenplay, but Dillon did his best with the part he was given. The flaws are over the screenplay that never goes deep in the mother's craziness, and has some confusing parts as the one that happens in the beach and the soundtrack, that is a bit goofy and too funny, when it needed to be more serious. While watching this film you can’t help but get the impression that this film was directed by a first-time Hollywood director, who called in a few favors from some of his famous friends. Even though Kevin manages to give us an interesting plot his attempt wasn't completely successful. Beside that `LoverBoy' is a decent film provided by some great leading actors.
