Exclusive 'Lovelace' Clip: Out of the Comfort Zone
By David Weiner
Amanda Seyfried pulls out all the stops as notorious '70s adult film star Linda Lovelace in the critically acclaimed biopic Lovelace, out on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, and we have an exclusive clip from the bonus features…
Set against the sexual revolution of the 1970s, Lovelace tracks the rise of the legendary Deep Throat star. To the public, she was an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. But behind closed doors, she was used and abused by the porn industry at the hands of her coercive husband, Chuck Traynor (played by Peter Sarsgaard). In time, she learned to take control of her life, and soon changed her tune to reveal that she was actually the survivor of a far darker story.
Directed by Oscar winners Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl, The Celluloid Closet), Lovelace also stars Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.
