‘The Body’: Czech Andrea Absolonová (Lea de Mae) biopic gets explicit first look
The Body (Její tělo), a new biopic about Czech athlete-turned-pornstar Andrea Absolonová, who performed under the name Lea De Mae, has received its first look through a new trailer and stills from distributor Bontonfilm. Directed by Natália Císařovská, The Body is slated to hit Czech cinemas from November 15.
The Body tells the incredible true story of Absolonová, a promising diver with the Czech national team whose career took an unforeseen turn after she suffered a career-ending spinal injury while training for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. While she recovered from her injury, she did not qualify for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and retired from the sport at the age of 22.
After doing some modeling work, Absolonová was convinced to audition for the adult film industry, where she performed under the name Lea De Mae alongside Czech starlets Silvia Saint, Daniella Rush and Monica Sweetheart.
