Lovelace is a 2013 biopic about "Linda Lovelace" (real name Linda Boreman), the star of Deep Throat (1972). Deep Throat was the first "mainstream" pornographic film that featured characters, a plot, and passable production values. The movie became something of a sensation in the early 1970s, and is one of the highest grossing pornographic films of all time; it helped ushered in an era known as "Porno Chic," a brief time period in the 1970s and early 80s when porn films were taken seriously as legitimate cinema. The film stars Amanda Seyfried in the title role.

This movie provides examples of:

  • The '70s: The setting of the film.
  • Adaptational Heroism: While he only gets a few minutes of screen time, Larry Marchiano is portrayed as being much nicer than the man Linda Lovelace/Boreman later claimed he was – a physically abusive husband on occasion who was also verbally abusive to their kids. It also isn't mentioned in the aftermath that the Marchianos divorced in 1996.
  • Advertised Extra: The trailer lists Chloë Sevigny as one of the stars. In the theatrical release, she has about two lines.
