Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple
Summary: The story of Linda Lovelace, who is used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, before taking control of her life.
My Thoughts: Going into this movie, I thought it was just one of those cookie-cutter, soon to be on Netflix kind of docu-dramas. But when I saw the name AMANDA SEYFRIED, I was excited, I mean we all love Amanda Seyfriend and even if you love her for Mean Girls, you can see her in this and still love her, too. ONLY IF, you're one of the older people, because there are boobs seen, sexual references, and such. OBVIOUSLY. Its about a porn star. If you don't really know much about Amanda Seyfriend, you'll probably be a little scared of her performance and also, a little stunned at how she's maturing as an actress. But, I've really seen like, all her films so I have to say I've seen her breasts before. So this isn't a shock for me, but it will probably be one for you.
I don't know much about Linda Lovelace's story, but Amanda portrayed it well, whatever it was. It was a strong story and the way the movie was set up really took me for a turn. It was sort of like a reversal of itself a little bit. One part, it told the glamorous version, the next it went to shit. The story of Linda, not the movie. During the first part, I knew it wasn't what had happened, so I was a bit confused, but after the movie it all came together in a good way.
Another good actor was Peter Sarsgaard, he blew it out of the part. No pun intended. Literally, he was perfect and that's all I really can say about him, but together, him and Amanda really were what this movie was all about. They made this movie. And then, HEY, there's Juno Temple! She was barely noticeable but whatever, it's Juno FREAKING Temple. Then there was James Franco, he was swell as well. Hah, see what I did there, but yeah, James Franco didn't really play a "BIG" part in it, but the way he said his lines made him seems and feel...real, you know?
I loved the cinemetography as well, it really seemed like it was from the 70's and the way it was set up. Good, not good, great movie. Its for the matured people, so no bringing your 12 year old sister to see this.
