The 1972 pornographic film Deep Throat made headway (no pun intended) as the first film of its kind to feature a plot, earned $100 million – or $600 million, depending on whom you believe – and ultimately became an unforgettable piece of pop culture. But what you see in the film, its reception and figures in no way represent what was going on behind the camera, and director Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Lovelace is here to shed some light on just that.
Amanda Seyfried leads as Linda Lovelace. While she may have become a household name for her sexual freedom and talents, growing up, Linda was an innocent young girl who always obeyed her parents’ strict curfew.

You further solidified that bond with Freaky Friday, a grander scale film carried by the natural, genuine chemistry between you and Jamie Lee Curtis. Then it was bye-bye Disney, hello Mean Girls. The Santa’s Little Helper outfit and naughty behavior pushed the boundaries of your good girl image, but, at heart, Cady Heron is just a good girl who loses her way in the high school jungle and your natural talent for playing a fresh-faced young woman makes her an endearing heroine.
