One of the most enticing, if unknown prospects at the Sundance Film Festival (and one we think could spark a distributor bidding war) is “Lovelace” from “Howl” directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. And while there has been a lot of pictures and print about the movie thus far, the first clip has arrived to give a small taste of what’s to come.
Amanda Seyfried leads the picture as the infamous Linda Lovelace, a porn star who made her name thanks to a unique talent displayed in “Deep Throat.” But her life included a rocky relationship with Chuck Traynor (played by Peter Sarsgaard), her husband whom she later accused of abuse and manipulating her into the porn industry. In this scene from the film, we see a photoshoot with Linda and Larry Marchiano (Wes Bentley), as she explains her character and how she learns to enjoy sex. Linda and Larry would later marry.
