2013 Guide Analysis: "With rival film "Inferno" having fallen apart, this indie biopic of Linda Boreman now stands on its own and is slated to go before the press at Sundance in a few weeks. Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman ("Howl") helm from a script by W. Merritt Johnson ("Temple Grandin," "In Treatment") which is based on the biography by Eric Danville.

Boreman rose to fame as iconic porn star Linda Lovelace of 1972's "Deep Throat." She subsequently transformed into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano after breaking away from her abusive and exploitative husband. This particular film is told through the perspective of three interviewers at various stages of her life from 20 to 32. According to the filmmakers, the aim was to show her "ascent, decline and '80s-era redemption." Each act is said to be depicted in "different styles" to fit the content.

Seyfried is taking some risks with this, going full-frontal in a movie that will feature quite a bit of nudity from many involved. Other key players include Peter Sarsgaard as Boreman's pornographer husband Chuck Traynor, Wes Bentley as her second husband, Sharon Stone as her mother, James Franco as Hugh Hefner, Sarah Jessica Parker as Gloria Steinem, and Adam Brody as porn star Harry Reems. Despite the flash, the film is said to have a major empowerment message amidst all the T&A."
