In 1972, before the internet, before the explosion of the adult film industry, Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried; Les Miserables). Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard; TVs The Killing). As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation-less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with some 'impressive skills'. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world-and herself, as the survivor of a far darker story.

I thought that this was going to be a swinging seventies film, but about halfway through it took a surprising dark turn. It was at that point that I became engrossed. It was also interesting to learn more about the real 'Linda Lovelace'. Overall, I enjoyed the film, don't regret buying it and will watch it again.
