Amanda Seyfried (Les Misérables) is Linda Lovelace in this biopic of the '70s porn star who became a household name thanks to Deep Throat - the film that opened the middle-class' eyes to pornography. Co-stars Juno Temple, Sharon Stone and Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead).... More
In 1972, Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star in Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, she discovered the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Sarsgaard). 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, Lovelace became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative as the survivor of a darker story.Hide
