‘Lovelace’ Trailer: Amanda Seyfried Stars in ‘Deep Throat’ Porn Biopic

Radius-TWC debuted the first trailer for porn star biopic “Lovelace” on Wednesday.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the true-life drama stars Amanda Seyfried as Linda Boreman, who, as Linda Lovelace, became the world’s first erotic superstar due to the success of “Deep Throat.”

“There’s an idea of her is this one-dimensional character who has this talent for deep-throating,” Seyfried recently told Variety. “We wanted to tell her story from her point of view.”

“It’s a story about a woman trying to define herself,” Epstein added.

“Lovelace” debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will debut in U.S. theaters Aug. 9.

    I hope this is trailer is misleading. What could be an interesting tale of innocence corrupted and battling private demons that make you a celebrity, instead looks like it wants to be the inspiring tale of strong woman who beat the odds.

  2. The late Linda Lovelace’s biography (more at memoir) recalls her painfully protracted, horrific experiences under the “control” of a man who sexually exploited her, which nowadays is commonly reported by the media. What separates her ordeal from that of so many other women (men and children) forced into performing pornography is Lovelace’s phenomenal fame, ultimate escape and extraordinary survival.

    The movie’s trailer may be overstating (Hollywood hype) the ways in which she resembles a real-life heroine (or those of literature, legend and myth) but to survive the severity of a gross misadventure is characteristic of those qualities appropriate to a hero.

    Yeah, about a “woman trying to define herself.” Sadly, she defined herself on her knees.

    According to the trailor LL was “courageous”? Stupid me, I thought soldiers, fire fighters & Greenpeace warriors were courageous…who knew?

    Wow, She has really fallen from grace to be making a film which attempts to make porn a worthy career. Somehow they are trying to spin this into a feminist hero story. Linda Lovelace an inspiration because she can deliver the perfect oral sex.
