Review: Lovelace (2013)

Cover Source: IMDB,com

Title: Lovelace
Year: 2013
Directors: Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman
Writers: Andy Bellin
Main Cast: Amanda Seyfried, James Franco, Peter Sarsgaard.
Version Reviewied: Netflix Streaming Summary:
The story of Linda Lovelace, who is used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, before taking control of her life.

I've been wanting to see this movie since I first head about it. I was intrigued and curious about the story and the woman, Linda Lovelace. I was also attracted to the movie because of Amanda Seyfried.  I've loved every movie that I've seen her in so far and was sure that this would be no less pleasing.

I don't doubt Linda's story at all, yet I couldn't help but compare it to Tina Turner's life. True stories like this just break my heart but also remind me that even though these women were in horrible situations, they were able to overcome them and rise to something greater.

I really enjoyed Lovelace and would definitely watch it again. I plan on telling my husband about it as soon as I can. I can't wait to read Ordeal, Linda's autobiography.
