Lionsgate Films UK will bring to Blu-ray directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Lovelace (2013), starring Amanda Seyfried, James Franco, and Peter Sarsgaard. The preliminary release date set by the studio is December 23rd.
Official synopsis: Amanda Seyfried stars in this biopic based on the life of the eponymous '70s porn star. A year after an unplanned pregnancy forces her to move back into her parents Florida home, 19-year-old Linda Boreman (Seyfried) falls under the spell of manipulative local bar owner Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard), and ends up marrying him shortly after. Traynor, however, quick to exploit an opportunity, soon produces a private film of Linda performing various sex acts that comes to the attention of porn director Gerry Damiano (Hank Azaria). Liking what he sees, the director immediately casts her, now under her new stage name of Linda Lovelace, in his latest release, 'Deep Throat'. But although the film becomes the most successful porn movie in history, Linda soon realises that she has become a pawn in the game, as she begins to suffer increasingly violent abuse and exploitation at the hands of her husband.
Decent enough biopic, Ms. Seyfried acquitted herself admirably. Wouldn't be surprised if there's an extended edition in our future, one of the theatrical cut's weaknesses is that 93 minutes is barely enough time to let all the characters breathe. Boogie Nights went on an hour longer.
