THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT
1996, Sony Repertory, 129 min, USA, Dir: Milos Forman

Millionaire pornographer Larry Flynt may seem an unlikely subject for a biopic, but in the hands of director Milos Forman and screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, his life and legal battles brilliantly illuminate the continuing American conflict between free speech and censorship. The outstanding cast is led by Woody Harrelson as the Hustler magazine founder, rocker Courtney Love as doomed stripper Althea Leasure and Edward Norton as attorney Alan Isaacman.
