'Lovelace' Trailer: Amanda Seyfriend Channels a Porn Legend (VIDEO)

The Hollywood Reporter

Audiences curious to check out Lovelace, the big-screen depiction of the meteoric rise of adult film star Linda Lovelace, can now watch the biopic's first trailer.

The film stars Amanda Seyfried as the 19-year-old from Florida, born Linda Boreman, who became a crossover sensation after her talents were showcased in Deep Throat, the movie credited with launching the "porn chic" craze of the early 1970s.

Sundance Review: Lovelace

Tracing the unlikely starlet's journey from naive ingenue to the poster girl for the sexually freewheeling, pre-AIDS era -- followed by later efforts to expose her own victimization and reclaim her life -- Lovelace also stars Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck Traynor, Linda's abusive svengali of a boyfriend, plus Hank Azaria and Bobby Cannavale as the film's sleazy director and producer.

Watch closely for cameos from a gussied-down Sharon Stone as Linda's mother and James Franco as fan-for-life, Hugh HefnerLovelace, which The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy called "surprisingly good on several fronts" in his Sundance review, opens August 9.
