Lovelace by Robert P Epstein( Visual )

"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 (Amanda Seyfried) . Escaping a strict family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard). As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation - less centrefold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully in inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory narrative to the world - and herself as a survivor of a far darker story."--Container
