Amanda Seyfried in 'Lovelace'Radius-TWC

Amanda Seyfried's newest movie, "Lovelace," puts her in the shoes of legendary adult star Linda Lovelace. It's not all triple-X romps and '70s disco fun, though. As this trailer shows, "Lovelace" is also about the aftermath of the star's debut in "Deep Throat," as well as the significant abuse her husband Chuck (Peter Sarsgaard) doles out when Linda displeases him.

We get a look at Linda's family, played by Sharon Stone and Robert Patrick, small town folks who pray at the dinner table. Then there's her inevitable rise to fame, with help from filmmakers Jerry Damiano (Hank Azaria) and Butchie Peraino (Bobby Cannavale), who can't quite believe what they see on Chuck's home movie -- a talent that will soon make Linda a superstar. Chuck's dark side surfaces; he's jealous, controlling, and violent, and when Linda informs him she's quitting porn for good, she has nowhere to turn. We also get a brief look at Linda's post-Lovelace career, after she writes the book "Ordeal" about her time in the adult world.

In addition to a glimpse of Chloë Sevigny as a reporter who talks to Linda about her career and book, James Franco appears as a young and dapper Hugh Hefner. Adam Brody is nearly unrecognizable with a bushy '70s mustache as Linda's equally infamous co-star Harry Reems. Juno Temple also has a part as Linda's concerned friend Patsy.

Although this trailer is technically safe for work, it's also not really safe for work.
