The trailer for “Lovelace,” starring Amanda Seyffried, is really amazing. I can’t wait to see this in the theaters. I think you can expect to see some award noms for Seyfried after this film. If you want to check it out for yourself, look below the post.

“Lovelace” is a biopic about legendary porn star, Linda Lovelace and her turn from being an advocate for sexual freedom to a person telling her story of surivival. Here’s more on “Lovelace”:

“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. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully 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 the survivor of a far darker story.”

The film is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and written by Andy Bellin. Along with Seyfried, the film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Sharon Stone and Juno Temple.

“Lovelace” will be in theaters August 9.
