Synopsis


Lovelace
The life of one of the most infamous women in early '70s America gets a dramatization in this offbeat period biopic from co-directors Jeffrey Friedman and Robert Epstein. In the Florida suburbs, circa 1970, Linda Boreman (Amanda Seyfried) is an ordinary and unremarkable young woman who moved back in with her parents (Robert Patrick and Sharon Stone) a year or so earlier, following an unplanned pregnancy. One night on the town, she crosses paths with Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard) a local bar and restaurant owner who sees Linda as an opportunity; he soon wins her over as a girlfriend, and not long after, the two are married. Within a couple of years, Chuck shoots a private stag film of Linda performing oral sex on a partner, and decides to show it to Gerry Damiano (Hank Azaria), an up-and-coming porn director with ties to the Mafia. Damiano is so impressed by the footage that he immediately decides to cast Linda in his new picture, the hardcore comedy Deep Throat, which becomes the single most lucrative adult film of all time and turns the young woman -- renamed Linda Lovelace -- into a household name. The film then flashes forward to six years later, when Linda authors a shocking tell-all book about what really happened when the cameras weren't rolling; she describes the sadistic abuse that she endured at the hands of Traynor and a series of increasingly futile attempts to escape from his clutches, and claims that she was coerced to appear in the movie. The media then turns Lovelace -- who became a Long Island housewife named Linda Marciano -- into a feminist icon and a crusader against domestic violence and the enslavement of the porn industry. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Watchable biopic about the first true adult star

    This turned out to be a watchable biopic about the late, great Linda Lovelace, but I was definitely disappointed to see that they'd sanitized the film quite a bit compared to the actual history of the woman in question, but I suppose that's what you'll end up with when dealing with the Hollywood system in relation to something this sleazy.

    This movie is decent at best. The lead actress is absolutely gorgeous which is really the only reason I bought it. So if you like her you will like this movie: ;)

    Movie tried to mostly reflect on the main characters back story with some history on the movie that made her popular.
