The trailer for Lovelace is out today and it carries with it a sexy nostalgic vibe and a cavalcade of stars, including Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard at his creepy best, James Franco, Chris Noth, Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley and Hank Azaria to name just a few.
The story of the world's most famous porn star - and movie, Deep Throat - was never going to be an easy one to tell in the trailer so we understand why the editors can't really make clear the fact that Linda Lovelace, (born Linda Boreman) was physically, emotionally and sexually abused by her lover, Chuck Traynor, (Sarsgaard) who pimped her out and forced her to perform horrific sexual acts against her will at gunpoint. In the movie, Deep Throat, the bruises on her body are obvious. Linda left the adult industry utterly traumatised and went on to become an anti-porn campaigner. The trailer hints at some of the darkness, in a Zodiac way, but overall it feels like one wild romp ....which is a little problematic for us. Watch the trailer and see for yourself.
