Lovelace movie scene

Amanda Seyfried is adult film icon Linda Lovelace in Lovelace.

Amanda Seyfried (In Time) and Peter Sarsgaard (Green Lantern) star in a 2013 film drama about the iconic Seventies adult film star Linda Lovelace in the drama Lovelace.

In 1972—before the internet, before the adult film explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted adult theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace (Seyfried). Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Sarsgaard). As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio.  After struggling to break free from Traynor whose endless abuse nearly killed her, Linda made it her life’s mission to fight violence against women.

Directed by the filmmaking team of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl) from a screenplay by Andy Bellin (Trust),  the movie also features an impressive supporting cast that includes Hank Azaria (Hop), Bobby Cannavale (TV’s Boardwalk Empire), James Franco (127 Hours), Chris Noth (Frankie Go Boom), Chloe Sevigny (Mr. Nice) and, as Linda’s mother, Sharon Stone ($5 a Day).

The R-rated film had a VOD premiere and a limited release to U.S. theaters in August, 2013 to the tune of $360,000 at the domestic box office.

Bonus materials include a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.
