You know very well by now that I am not into drama movies because I don’t want to cry. But well, this isn’t a really sad story and I was encouraged by its trailer on You Tube that I decided to watch The Romantics with Dennis. The characters of Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes were passionate and artistic. They were former lovers but then Duhamel was getting married to the character of Anna Paquin, who was incidentally Holmes’ roommate and supposed best friend. Paquin here is just very controlling that she actually took over the life of Holmes. And eventually, she she got Holmes as her maid of honor.
Anyway, I am just thinking if such neurosis does exist.
Okay, I will not reveal the ending to the story, just in case you want to watch it. The situation is just not something that you want to happen to a friend or worse, your daughter.
The Romantics plot
Seven college friends reunite six years later for the wedding of Lila (Anna Paquin) and Tom (Josh Duhamel). Things go awry when the maid of honour Laura (Katie Holmes) and the bride clash over the groom, with whom Laura was once romantically involved. The story moves slowly trying to explore all the relationships of people in and around the circle of friends. The movie ends with the wedding getting ruined by rain, just before the marriage can be concluded. It is implied that, in the end, the controlling nature of the bride is too much for the groom and he still loves the maid of honour.–Source: Wikipedia

Linda Boreman, who was better known in the adult film industry as Linda Lovelace was a porn actor in the 70s who eventually became a famous name in mainstream cinema. She was best remembered for her part in the movie Deep Throat, which she starred alongside another X-rated actor, Harry Reems in 1972.
Her story is now being filmed in a porn bio-epic that stars Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia). Lovelace claims that it was not her intention to be in the porn industry. She was only forced by her husband Chuck Traynor (played by Peter Sarsgaard). Now, the cast is joined in by Demi Moore and Adam Brody. Moore plays the character of the celebrated feminist Gloria Steinem while Brody reprises Reems.
The movie began shooting last month and it will try to depict the controversial life and love of Linda Lovelace. Boreman eventually denounced her films and became an anti-porn activist. She died in 2002 in a car accident.
Veteran actor Eric Roberts is also part of the cast. He plays the role of lie detector expert Nat Laurendi who questioned Lovelace for the facts in her book entitled Ordeal.
Other stars in the movie are Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale, and Chris Noth. It is being directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, who is best known for the Allen Ginsberg film, Howl.
It is interesting to note that there is another bio-pic about Lovelace that is being created. This one is entitled Inferno and the infamous porn actress is played by Malin Ackerman.
