In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic 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 highlife when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centrefold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker storm.

DIRECTOR:  Rob Reiner
CAST: Michael Douglas, Diane Keaton, Frankie Valli

There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas), and that’s just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet. His wife Sarah Beth passed away years ago, so while awaiting his big real estate break, he’s biding his time in the waterfront four-plex building he owns – “Little Shangri-La” – surrounded by neighbours who have formed a close-knit community that he mostly avoids when he’s not barking about how noisy their kids are or taking heat for hogging the whole driveway with his classic Mercedes Benz convertible. Even kindly Leah (Diane Keaton), who persists in inviting Oren to participate in mojito happy hour despite his cranky demeanour, gets rebuffed. His only real friend, fellow realtor Claire (Frances Sternhagen), gets a pass because of their decades-long history and the fact that she can dish out snark and sarcasm as well as he can even when he’s at his eye-rolling worst.
