The life of one of the most infamous women in early ’70s America gets a dramatization in this offbeat period biopic from co-directors Jeffrey Friedman and Robert Epstein.
Linda Lovelace gets under the all-consuming influence of her abusive husband and self-declared manager, Chuck Traynor, who uses all means possible to persuade her to comply with his demands.
The fragile woman becomes an infamous porn star, seems to be happy, but eventually breaks free from her husband and discloses the truth in order to prevent other women from getting similarly exploited.
The film stars Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Juno Temple, James Franco, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Eric Roberts and Hank Azaria.
The UK release date for the film is 23rd August 2013.
