Movies: Lovelace

2014-09-03 15:09


Overview: In 1972, before the Internet and 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 highlife when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor.

What's it about?  As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation, a centerfold fantasy and 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. 

Our fave bits? The movie is based on a true story so we really love how Amanda brings Lovelace to life. She owned this role!

Rating: 3/5
