Lovelace - 2012
The brutal exploitation of porn star Linda Lovelace is the gruelling subject of this first-class biopic. Amanda Seyfried plays the young actress who was raised a strict Catholic only to appear in the most successful skin flick ever. Peter Sarsgaard convinces as her abusively controlling husband while there's a cheeky cameo from James Franco as Hugh Hefner. Perfectly capturing the day-glo sleaze of the early 70s, this is a worthy companion piece to Boogie Nights.
