70’s hair, pornography, all star cast and Amanda Seyfried — are you hooked yet? Here’s 5 reasons why you should go see ‘Lovelace’ in theaters!
Lovelace captures the true story of ’70s porn-star, Linda Lovelace. With her iconic film Deep Throat that hit theaters nationwide, Linda became a household name. What people never realized however, is what happened when the cameras weren’t rolling. You won’t want to miss this “intense” and “enlightening” biopic.
Amanda Seyfried In ‘Lovelace’: Movie Review
Amanda Seyfried Bares All
First Mean Girls, then Les Miserables, and now Lovelace! Amanda Seyfried, 27, is on fire as Linda Lovelace, capturing your heart as the innocent yet bold young porn star. Amanda defies expectations with this daring biopic as she makes you fall for her girlish charm and sympathize with her painful desperation as she struggles to escape from her abusive husband and the pornographic industry. Plus, she takes her clothes off!
It’s A Blast To The Past
With big hair, paisley button-ups, and velvet vests, this movie takes you on a time trip. From Linda’s fro, to her disco waves, her mother’s curly poof, her husband’s mustache, and every other ’70’s hairstyle you can think of, you will for sure get a kick out of the look and feel of the time — it’s out of sight!
Sharon Stone, 55, delivers a strong performance as Linda’s tough-love mother who disciplines her daughter to always obey her husband. Their dynamic opens the door to another time where the patriarchal figure was very much influential on familial structure. Underneath the stern demeanor however, lies a loving mother whom her daughter loves relentlessly. This is where the heart of the film lies.
The Cast Is Superb
Peter Sarsgaard, 42, delivers a chilling performance as the porn-obssessed Chuck Traynor, whose love for Seyfried’s Linda turns into a dangerous obsession.
And we can’t forget about Mr. Big! Chris Noth, 58, is a scene-stealer as Anthony Romano, a big wig in the porn industry. His tenderness towards Linda and ruthlessness towards Chuck is perfection.
Linda Marciano’s Story Is Enlightening
Deep Throat made Linda Lovelace a staple name for her extraordinary “skills” and innocent demeanor–oh and who could forget those cute freckles along her cheeks?
What is important, however, is that Lovelace takes us behind closed doors and reveals Linda’s struggles to break free from Chuck’s grasp and make more of herself than just a porn star. It is truly awakening and inspiring.
Lovelace comes out in theaters and on demand on August 9.
Well there you have it, HollywoodLifers! Will YOU go see Lovelace when it comes out?
