Fans of Miss S will be pleased to hear she appears topless in a few scenes but otherwise the movie is no "Boogie Nights" as it's just a little bit boring.

Amanda is very good as "Deep Throat" star Linda Lovelace but the film's plot is pretty threadbare, even though it shows her story from discovery to household name then rewinds and shows the grittier side of things.

Always nice too see Juno Temple mind you.

I didn't know this was out yet. How come you have seen it?

Been looking forward to this film since last year.

Always nice to see a young beautiful actress willing to get her kit off in nearly every film.

I still haven't seen the fuss over Juno Temple. I have seen her in loads of films and I found her as average can be. She was the worst thing about Atonement, which is one of my fav films

Does amanda really take on Linda really well? I'll have to compare when i see the film but wanted to know.

I watched this yesterday and it is a very good film
Amanda won't be getting an oscar nomination, but gives a great performance

It starts off as very meh and not much goes on. But the film is told in two parts. The first half is how glamaorous and amazing Linda's rise to fame was. Then the second half pretty much is like a repeat of the first half, but shows the level of physical, mental and emotional abuse she suffered from her husband behind the scenes and fills in the blanks given from the first half of the film.

Very good film. Just don't let the first half of the film bore you, because it becomes much better in the last half.

BIB - I was just about to ask if the film is still being shown, but your post has answered my question. There was some talk yesterday of the film being recalled as it contained unauthorised use of footage from Deep Throat.

And yes, she said in later life that watching DT was akin to watching her being raped again and again.

It's funny how decent quality rips of certain films appear online and a thread subsequently appears about them in Movies ..

(says he, as he goes off to start a thread about Man of Tai Chi .. *cough*)

Very tragic women, and the film has left an impression on my mind on what happened to her. In a lot of ways, she deserves to be viewed as an inspirational woman.

So the OP assumes the film is only of interest to people wanting to see Amanda Seyfried naked. And surprise surprise, found it boring.

Not enough hardcore action for you? Not what you were expecting, eh?

Anyone who can read knows the film is about how the titular chatacter was forced into making porn movies, essentially raped and abused, and eventually finding religion and becoming a campaigner against porn.

If your yardstick of a good movie is based on actresses getting naked, there is plenty of porn on the internet you can get off on.

Hardly .

It was just an amusing title to draw people in.

The film is boring because the plot isn't up to much.

Exactly. I'm aware of the story of Linda Lovelace and this is why I want to watch this film, not specifically to see Amanda Seyfried's boobs.

don't know whether I could buy her story . I do believe she did get screwed LOL . I mean she was used like a dirty rag but to buy her story were she couldn't get away from Chuck Traynor I find it hard to believe and the parts she didn't like making the porn movie . In the movie itself she sure doesn't look like she dislike it . I mean if someone doesn't like to do something there would be some sored or hints or signs and I couldn't see any . In the real movie she look like she did enjoy doing it . Hey, it just my opinion and I could be wrong . If by chance her story was totally true ? I feel sorry for her . Though, its funny how they made this movie now when both her and Chuck are dead now ... IMDb got it right with an 6

She was abused mentally and physically by her husband. I am sure many women could say how difficult it is to get of of a relationship like that. She put a front on for her husband and everyone else. The second part of the film actually re-tells the film from the first part and shows what happened behind the scenes and that she did not like doing it.

She was an actress. A porn actress, granted, but still an actress.

And yes, it's totally possible that one would find it difficult to escape from a toxic person or relationship. There are still many people (both female and male) who are psychologically trapped in destructive relationships today.

In addition to that, domestic violence was still a social taboo in Lovelace's time. People in abusive relationships were expected to endure for the sake of marriage or whatnot.

There was always an awareness about domestic violence, but the real awareness didn't happen until roughly the 1980s. The improvement in public awareness was due to numerous national public awareness campaigns and TV films about domestic violence and child abuse throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.
