Lovelace Comes Home November 5th

Lovelace, the moderately controversial film about porn legend Linda Lovelace is making its way to Blu-Ray and DVD on November 5th. It’s a cast that’s hard to argue with, and a film that is sure to get people talking, although it’s a shame there aren’t any Babestation cam girls or other pornographic actresses featured on the casting list.

There doesn’t seem to be word on the bonus features yet, and that could be a wild meeting in itself. Get all the info below, and mark your calendars.

Lovelace Synopsis:

In 1972—before the internet, before the adult film explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted adult theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. After struggling to break free from Traynor whose endless abuse nearly killed her, Linda made it her life’s mission to fight violence against women.

LOVELACE was directed by the filmmaking team of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl, The Celluloid Closet) from a screenplay by Andy Bellin (Trust). The film was produced by Heidi Jo Markel for Eclectic Pictures, Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg for Untitled Entertainment, and Jim Young for Animus Films, with executive producers Boaz Davidson, Danny Dimbort, Mark Gill, Merritt Johnson, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and John Thompson for Nu Image/Millennium Films. LOVELACE was made with the cooperation of the estate of Linda Lovelace.
