DVD REVIEW: Lovelace

This biopic of former porn-star-turned-feminist Linda Lovelace is a fascinating watch.

Rating: R16

This biopic of former porn-star-turned-feminist Linda Lovelace tracks her tortured history with abusive manager-husband Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard).

While graphic at times, it’s Amanda Seyfried’s portrayal of Linda that is heartbreaking as she pursues her dream of becoming a star under false pretences.

Although there are questions over factual accuracy, it’s a fascinating watch into a deeply troubled union in an equally conflicted industry.
