About this Film

From directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman comes 'Lovelace', a biopic charting the experiences of '70s porn icon Linda Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried) and her volatile relationship with husband/manager Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard).

In 1972, Linda Boreman (a.k.a. Linda Lovelace) is propelled to fame following the explosion of hardcore adult film 'Deep Throat'. From the outside looking in, she appears to be a willing participant, but off camera she's subject to abuse and exploitation.

The story of a hardcore pawn…

This twisty, sympathetic biopic of the notorious ’70s porn princess is more arthouse than grindhouse. Directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl) get intimate with Linda’s tormented history, not her tonsils, and the results are riveting. There’s a breathless quality and pitch-perfect period feel right from the get-go.

Traynor parlays her ‘speciality’ into Mafia-backed porn stardom: Linda’s role in carnal comedy Deep Throat (1972) turns her into a media sensation...

Interesting and Sad

Reviewer: Joe400Date: 2013-08-26

Before watching this film, I couldn't get the stereotypical thought of Linda Lovelace. However, this film shows the other side of the story as well as the story that the public got back in the 70's. Amanda Seyfried is magnificent and outstanding delivering an entertaining performance. A must see!
