Directed by Milos Forman, The People vs. Larry Flynt is the fictionalised, but true, story of how smut-peddler Larry Flynt--the poor man's redneck Hugh Hefner--ended up appealing a libel case (brought by televangelist Jerry Falwell) to the US Supreme Court and winning a major legal victory that affected all Americans. It transpires that the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights--as brought to life in this splendidly quirky and alternately reverent and irreverent comedy--ensures everyone's freedom by protecting a whole range of expression, from the banal to the outrageous. Scripted by the writers of Ed Wood (another affectionately twisted biography of a disreputably eccentric entertainment figure), The People vs. Larry Flynt applies a similar sort of exaggerated and telescoped editorial-cartoon sensibility to the wild life and times of Hustler skin-magazine publisher Larry Flynt. There are terrific performances by Woody Harrelson as Flynt, grunge-star-turned-glamour-puss Courtney Love as his wife Althea and Edward Norton as their lawyer (a composite character).
DVD Description
As an early school drop-out, Larry Flynt was nobody's hero - least of all when he pushed American tolerance to the limit with his raunchy porn magazine, Hustler. But Flynt was to become an unlikely champion when he took his crusade for freedom of speech all the way to the Supreme Court and won! Nominated for 2 Oscars and 5 Golden Globe awards, The People Vs Larry Flynt is a story that encompasses love, loss ... and a heck of a lot of fun!
