Florida, 1970. At 21-year-old Linda Borman (Amanda Seyfried) in the past – the birth of the child which it was necessary to give on adoption, and in the future – any prospects. She lives with parents, does not study and does not work. Suddenly in her life there is a charming and relaxed guy by name of Chuck Treynor (Peter Sarsgaard). It wins heart of the girl, and Linda marries, without knowing that her spouse – the souteneur. Transformation of the modest provincial into a pornostar Linda Lavleys who in 1972 subdued America with a cash hit «A deep throat» so begins.
Linda Lavleys / Borman published four autobiographies. Two of them were pro-pornographic, two – anti-pornographic
Perhaps, the most interesting in the history of Linda Lavleys – how the rolling triumph of «A deep throat» was seriously apprehended, collected, by different estimates, from 50 to 500 million dollars (the picture extended a mafia, and the gangsters гроссбухи do not show). The tape was obviously artly weak, and real interest in it was represented by some minutes of screen time with that sexual trick which entitled the film. However America perceives seriously any success in what it consisted. Not without reason one of the series of the last years most popular in the USA – reality show about a family which earned millions on duck decoys. And these people too give interview, act with speeches, write books …
Before giving leading roles Seyfried and Sarsgaarda, producers wanted to employ Kate Hudson and James Franco
«Лавлэйс», however, does not reflect as the story on whims of the American psychology. The second feature film of documentary film makers Rob Epstayn and Jeffrey Friedman is devoted to Linda Borman’s private life / by Lavleys. However, why "film"? «Лавлэйс» – two films rolled into one. The first half of a tape is, so to speak, cinema about Linda for men, amusing, atmospheric, positive, erotic and in own way gentle history how the woman by means of the loving husband was liberated and became famous. Yes, the glory to it came in a doubtful profession. But the pornography is not prostitution! It in any sense too art! Also that bad in earning on hobby?
When the success of Lavleys reaches the highest point, the second half of a tape which it is possible to call «cinema about Linda for women» begins. Having left from the husband, the heroine publishes the autobiography, and it appears that Chuck beat and humiliated the wife, forced to be engaged in prostitution, threatened it with the weapon. «When you look "A deep throat", you see, how me force», – these words of Lavleys did in due time to many noise and made the former pornostar the favourite of feminists. The picture thus from almost comedy turns into the gloomy, heavy drama, clear and close to any woman facing family violence.
