There are definitely no bonnets or bustles to be seen here… Amanda Seyfried has well and truly left Les Miserables’ Cosette behind.

The 27-year-old actress has swapped the streets of revolutionary France for the seedy and sleazy world of the 1970s porn industry.

Seyfried plays 70s star Linda Lovelace, a young porn actress who rose to fame after the phenomenal and surprise success of scripted porn film Deep Throat.

The film tells the story of Linda’s relationship with her abusive husband and manager Chuck Traynor. Meeting her as a 20-year-old living with her parents, Traynor took Linda to New York and forced her into pornography and prostitution.

The trailer sees her catapulted into the public eye, before her world starts to crumble around her.

Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Robert Patrick, James Franco and Juno Temple, Lovelace was met with favourable reviews when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
