Do you appreciate a biopic cataloguing the trials and tribulations of fame: abusive relationships, drugs, exploitation, etc.? Are you a closeted connoisseur (or not-so-closeted) of vintage porn, particularly prime 1970s skin flicks? Whether either or both (they’re not mutually exclusive), you’re in luck this Friday when the Linda Lovelace biopic “Lovelace” hits theaters. (Check out our Berlin review here.)
Starring Amanda Seyfried as the “Deep Throat” actress, “Lovelace” follows her rise to fame, thanks to porn, and fall into drugs, leading to Lovelace’s ultimate renunciation of the industry. Along the way, Lovelace makes some now iconic porn films with various co-stars including Harry Reems aka “Dick Long” (Adam Brody), and suffers from emotional, physical and drug abuse at the hands of her manager husband (Peter Sarsgaard). On the less seedy side, Lovelace also gets to rub shoulders with the likes of Hugh Hefner (James Franco) and Sammy Davis, Jr. (Ron Pritchard).
With two days until its release (pun intended?), the heat is on and, along with the U.S. and U.K. trailers, we’ve got two more “Lovelace” clips for your perusal (and one additional one you can see here). Check out James Franco as Hef and Adam Brody as a very supportive “Dick Long” out below.
