Amanda Seyfried in Lovelace (2013) Movie Image

In Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s “Lovelace”, Amanda Seyfried plays Lovelace, the infamous adult film star who eventually went on to denounce her career and became an outspoken proponent of the industry. Wondered how it happened? Well, Epstein and Friedman’s film purports to tell her story. Who knows how much of it is real. The real Lovelace, aka Linda Susan Boreman, passed away in 2002. So I guess we’ll never really know how much of her life the movie got right.

In the meantime, take a look at the first trailer and a poster for the film.

In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.

The rather impressive cast, besides Seyfried, includes Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.

Starring everywhere this August 9th.

    nice! Loving the 70’s look and feel, not just the setting. Like this was shot on film.

    It does look good. Although if this is one of those movies about someone who takes their clothes off for a living and doesn’t actually do so this will be yet another example of how both actors and studios in Hollywood have giant sticks up their butts when it comes to nudity.
