Lovelace in cinemas Friday: Win Linda Lovelace’s memoir Ordeal
Preview by Jack Foley
TO celebrate this Friday’s release of Lovelace, we’ve got three copies of Linda Lovelace’s memoir Ordeal to give away!
Lovelace stars Amanda Seyfried in the iconic title role of Linda Lovelace and Golden Globe nominee Peter Sarsgaard as her charismatic but controlling husband Chuck Traynor.
Inspired by the real life story of Linda Marchiano, Lovelace is a true story of fame, abuse and betrayal set against the sexual revolution of the 1970s, co-directed by Academy Award winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffery Friedman (Howl, The Celluloid Closet).
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.
