Fifty shades of Grey (2015)

Not having read the book, I was amazed by the ‘odd arrangement’ between the couple and asked myself many times ‘why would a woman do this?’

Based on a book written by E.L.James, actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson play the extremes of dominance/power and innocence/vulnerability. Though it is not a conventional couple, you can see why it would or would not work, depending on which flavour of ice cream you prefer 😉

I fear the result is a film which will be better than the book, though it was a bestseller. Some scenes (non sexual) and lines leave a lasting impact in the otherwise confused, painful and twisted fairytale.

2/5
