From Academy Award® winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (HOWL, THE CELLULOID CLOSET) comes the true story of fame, abuse and betrayal set against the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Starring Amanda Seyfried and Golden Globe nominee Peter Sarsgaard, along with an all-star cast including Emmy Award winner Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale, Academy Award® nominee James Franco, Debi Mazar, Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Academy Award® nominee Sharon Stone, Academy Award® nominee Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.

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.

LOVELACE is directed by the filmmaking team Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (HOWL, THE CELLULOID CLOSET) from a screenplay by Andy Bellin (TRUST). The film is produced by Heidi Jo Markel for Eclectic Pictures, Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg for Untitled Entertainment, and Jim Young for Animus Films, with executive producers Boaz Davidson, Danny Dimbort, Mark Gill, Merritt Johnson, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and John Thompson for Nu Image/Millennium Films. LOVELACE was made with the cooperation of the estate of Linda Lovelace.
