Lovelace helped popularize X-rated movies with her starring role in the 1972 film Deep Throat. However, Lovelace, whose real name was Linda Boreman, eventually disowned the industry she helped popularize and became an advocate against pornography. Boreman shared an abusive relationship with her first husband, Chuck Traynor, who allegedly forced her to do pornography and also physically abused her.
Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace stars Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck Traynor, and also features Sharon Stone, Bobby Cannavale, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Chris Noth, Adam Brody, Sarah Jessica Parker and James Franco, as Hugh Hefner.
Lovelace is not the only ponography-themed film screening at Sundance. Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction, is about a man addicted to pornography. Sundance runs through Jan. 27.
