Hey folks, Harry here...   I don't know about you, but Amanda Seyfried surprised the hell out of me in LES MISERABLES...  I've been a fan of hers for a while, but she's really starting to come into her own as an actress, which is why I'm curious to see how LOVELACE plays at Sundance this year.   She stars in this with Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny, Debi Mazar, Eric Roberts, Juno Temple, Robert Patrick and Wes Bentley.   So she has a helluva supporting team - and certainly Linda Lovelace's life has a lot of grit to it.   She was brought up strictly religious, but when she met Chuck Traynor - he led her on a path of self-discovery and exploitation.   Linda was the face of porn and her debut in DEEP THROAT was huge.   DEEP THROAT wasn't just a tremendous theatrical success, but it was shown on College Campuses and intensely discussed by the critical community at the time.   It single handedly made the term DEEP THROAT part of the language of sex - but then years after the hub bub, Linda came out with a harrowing tale of subjugation and abuse.   Let's hope the film is going for more that cheesecake sexuality and exploitation - and makes this a very powerful story.   It's certainly there to tell.   Here's a clip from a photo shoot sequence in the movie, enjoy...
