Loverboy ★★ 2005 (R)

Obsessive mom love. Bacon directs wife Sedgwick in this adaptation of Victoria Redel's novel. Young Emily (played by daughter Sosie Bacon) always felt like an outsider because her parents (Tomei, Bacon) were so wrapped up in each other. So when she's an adult, Emily ruthlessly decides to become a single mom and give son Paul all the love she missed out on. But Emily freaks out at the slightest hint of independence from the growing Paul (Kay), who she still insists on calling “Loverboy.” Really creepy pic is spent waiting for Emily to go completely off the rails. 86m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
