The first domestic and UK trailers for "Lovelace" have been released. The film star Amanda Seyfried as the title character, in a role we've never seen her in before. An incredible ensemble rounds on the cast including Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, James Franco, Eric Roberts, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny and Sarah Jessica Parker.
The trailer seems like the picture captures the 70s perfectly, from fashion, to tone and overall attitude. The subject matter is incredibly interesting, given the explosive state of where technology is today and how the porn industry was slowly taking shape.
Synopsis: 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.
