In 1972, “Deep Throat” took the world by storm as the first porn feature to make it big in the mainstream-produced for under $50,000, the film went on to earn hundreds of millions internationally. The unlikely star behind it all was Linda Lovelace, an unknown actress who fled her strict religious family into the arms of lowly hustler Chuck Traynor, the man responsible for launching Lovelace into the limelight for a brief and fraught stint as the world’s first porn star. Starring Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard, the film charts Lovelace’s public successes and private hardships through her transformation from girl-next-door porn star to feminist advocate. In Person: Directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
