Editorial Reviews

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. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding performances carry this movie August 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Let me state upfront that I, like most people, have heard of Linda Lovelace, but I knew next to nothing about her, other than she starred in "Deep Throat" (which I haven't seen) over 40 years ago. But this movie made quite a splash when it was first screened earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, and I couldn't wait to see it. Now the movie is finally out, both in theatres and on VOD.

"Lovelace" (2013 release; 93 min.) starts in 1970 when we get to meet Linda (played by Amanda Seyfried), living at home with her ultra-strict parents (played by Robert Patrick and Sharon Stone). Linda gets to know Chuck (played by Peter Sarsgaard) and they hit it off. It's not long before Linda moves in with him (and eventually marries him), but it's equally not long before Chuck, in desperate need of money, is getting Linda involved in shady things, leading to what eventually would become "Deep Throat" (for which she was paid $1,250). But the problems with Chuck run much deeper than that. At some point Linda flees back to her parents' house, hoping to stay just a few days, when mom coldly turns her away with "you married Chuck, you must obey him". To tell you more would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first and foremost, this movie is a performers' dream as there are so many choice roles, and most of them relish the challenge and run with it. Let's start with Amanda Seyfried as the title character: her days on "As The World Turns" and "All My Children", and even "Mean Girls" are long gone! Seyfried really surprised me with this role. And then there is Peter Sarsgaard, who must have salivated at the opportunity to play the challenging role of Chuck, as unlikeable character as you'll ever meet.

"I spent exactly 17 days in the pornography industry and somehow these 17 days are supposed to define who I am for the rest of my life, but I hope that people can see me for who I really am." Linda Boreman (Seyfried) is a normal teenager in the sixties. She is a little naive and sheltered but nothing too extreme. When she meets a man named Chuck Traynor (Saragaard) he promises to take care of her and give her what she wants. Happy to be out of her parents house she gets married and things are looking up. When Chuck gets her a job she thinks its going to be fantastic. Little by little her life is taken away from her, then one day she fights back. This is first and foremost NOT a movie about pornography. This is a movie about a woman who becomes manipulated and controlled by a man she trusted and her fight to get someone to help her. While Seyfried does a good job in this it's nothing Oscar worthy but she does play it in a way that makes the movie very depressing and you really feel for her and want her to make it out. I could keep going on about this and many people won't watch just because they think it's something it isn't, but this is worth watching and a real women's lib type movie. Overall, if you liked Boogie Nights you will like this. I give it a B.

Forcefully directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman based on the book, "Ordeal", written by Linda herself, is the story of a woman who spent years paying publicly and personally for her short lived (basically, 17 days) time in the world of pornography. Linda Boreman (Amanda Seyfried) started out a naive teenager. The freckle-faced 'girl next door' who met up with the wrong man, Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard), a sweet talking, attention giving parasite with dollar signs in his eyes at first sight of her. He quickly schmoozes Linda from her strict upbringing with her mother (Sharon Stone) and father (Robert Patrick) to an all-out freedom that she doesn't know about or what to expect from life in the 1970's.

The two quickly marry in what appears to be the first part of the movie which looks to play out in two halves. During this telling part we learn the very succinct tale of Linda taking the porn industry by storm with the movie "Deep Throat". Chuck is questionably in charge of everything; Behind changing her name to 'Lovelace', The Producer, Anthony (Chris Noth), Director, Gerry (Frank Azaria) and co-stars, Debi Mazar and Adam Brody. An overly eager crew of pornographers shows a very misleading lifestyle of which I found lacking any real dubiousness (everything being just a matter of fact). I wouldn't have thought this type of business was so aloof and quite business at hand. Everybody seemed happy enough, sometimes even jovial, and mainly all get along except for Chuck, who is growing more disgruntled and angrily controlling. Even Hugh Hefner (James Franco) is a good friend to Linda, especially in a private screening of the movie as they introduce it to an adoring crowd and then to the masses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Amanda Seyfried August 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This dark tale about the horrific life of Linda Lovelace is hypnotizing. The cinematography is gritty. While I cant tell if the fashion(70's) is what made it so dark, or if it was a choice of the directors to bath the story in dimness. Peter Sarsgaard portrayal of Lovelace's husband is remarkable. While historically he plays dark characters well he is particularly heinous, and subhuman in this part. His talent to paint himself as this truly despicable character will leave a bad taste in your mouth, but none the less will keep you glued to the screen as he descents.

Other honorable mention includes Robert Patrick. His scenes seemed to touch me the most. He portrayed Lovelace's father and seemed the only one who captured what the audience is left feeling. Complete sympathy for Linda.

With that being said if there is no other reason to watch the movie than do it for Amanda Seyfried's performance. She totally disappears in this role. She takes you through Linda's life and is able to completely emote from innocent, scared, and finally indignant. This is a daring role for someone who is usually casted as a 'darling'. Seyfried is sensational. Granted it is only August I hope that she will not be forgotten during award season.
