Starring Amanda Seyfried, the biopic shines a spotlight on the life of adult film star Linda Lovelace. Deep Throat, the first pornographic feature to be a mainstream success, was an international sensation in 1972 and made its star, Lovelace, a media darling. Years later the “poster girl for the sexual revolution” revealed a darker side to her story.

Cannavale plays film financier Butchie Peraino in the film, which also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, James Franco and Sharon Stone.

Meanwhile, Eduardo Noriega will also be seeing his latest film premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

Sweetwater, starring the 39-year-old Spanish actor, has been added to the festival’s lineup.

Set in the late 1800s, the film centers on a fanatical religious leader, a renegade Sheriff and a former prostitute as they collide in a blood triangle on the rugged plains of the New Mexico Territory.

Along with Noriega, the film stars Ed Harris, January Jones, Jason Isaacs and Amy Madigan.
