The risque publishing sensation about a kinky relationship springs to life on the big screen. Virginal student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) goes to interview wealthy, handsome, charismatic entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). The attraction between them is immediate and electric. But Ana learns that Christian is only interested in a relationship on his own controlling terms. As they embark on an intense and passionate affair, he introduces her to his dark and very particular tastes. Now she finds herself exploring her own desires for the first time. Having sold more than 90 million copies in e-book and print, E.L. James’s worldwide bestseller is a genuine publishing phenomenon. ‘Nowhere Boy’ director Sam Taylor-Wood helms this eagerly anticipated steamy adaptation. Jamie Dornan from TV’s ‘The Fall’ makes a sleek and manipulative Christian Grey. Fellow rising star Dakota Johnson is perfectly cast as Ana – the innocent woman on an extraordinary erotic journey.
All that ‘strong sex’ in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey has seen it categorised with an 18 certificate in the Uk compared to the less restrictive R rating which the US classed it as.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) decided on the most restrictive classification after deeming “the portrayal of erotic role play based on domination, submission and sado-masochistic practices” inappropriate for younger cinema-goers.
