1. Girls on Film: How Lovelace fails to tell the real story

    It’s a maddening missed opportunity. By whittling this story to such narrow and problematic parameters, Lovelace ignores the compelling life that actually makes her story worth telling, and captures her in the same constrictive box she fought against. Her real life wasn’t a relatively nice existence briefly sullied by Traynor until she found personal happiness in a new marriage. Her life was a long struggle for security. As she herself tells it, she was a desperate woman who felt victimized through every iteration of her life — as a child, a wife, a porn star, an anti-porn activist, and a woman struggling to make ends meet. She did once speak of the “joy” her family brought her, but that only came after years of heartache and struggle that filled multiple autobiographies. In her own words, Linda Boreman (her real name) was unable to “escape” her role as “Linda Lovelace.”
