New Lovelace Poster Arrives
A star is porn

03 July 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: Exclusive

If the words 'Deep Throat' evoke images of shady men in car parks, congratulations, you are officially safe for work. If they conjure more - how to put this? - salty images, that's probably because of Linda Boreman and her career in porno flicks. This new poster for Lovelace shows Amanda Seyfried as Linda Boreman, aka Linda Lovelace, and the film's full complement of period peacocks.


Appearing alongside Seyfried are Juno Temple, Adam Brody, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny and James Franco. But dominating proceedings is Peter Sarsgaard's Chuck Traynor, Boreman's domineering husband and the creepy svengali who guided a career in skin flicks until she eventually gave up in favour of campaigning anti-pornography work.

If the poster's '70s period costumes and disco aesthetic calls to mind Boogie Nights, that may not be entirely accidental. Expect a bittersweet take on an unusually lived life.

As the first-look still from Lovelace showed, this biopic will focus on both sides of Boreman's life, including the sweaty mechanics of the low-budget pornos she worked on. Be warned, and think twice before you take your gran along.

Lovelace is in UK cinemas from August 23.
