Storyline

When Anastasia Steele, a literature student, goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey as a favor to her roommate Kate Kavanagh, she encounters a beautiful, brilliant and intimidating man. The innocent and naive Ana starts to realize she wants him. Despite his enigmatic reserve and advice, she finds herself desperate to get close to him. Not able to resist Ana's beauty and independent spirit, Christian Grey admits he wants her too, but on his own terms. Ana hesitates as she discovers the singular tastes of Christian Grey - despite the embellishments of success, his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, and his loving family, Grey is consumed by the need to control everything.

Trivia

The casting of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele was one of the most talked about throughout Hollywood, with fans pushing for the likes of Garrett Hedlund, Chris Evans, Henry Cavill, Alex Pettyfer, Ryan Gosling, Armie Hammer, Robert Pattinson, Matt Bomer and Chris Hemsworth to be considered for Christian, and Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Wilde, Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie and Lily Collins for the role of Anastasia. Christian Cooke and Dominic Cooper auditioned for Christian, with Stephen Amell being reportedly in talks for the role at some point. Finally, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were cast, with Johnson beating out the likes of Shailene Woodley, Elizabeth Olsen, Imogen Poots, Alicia Vikander, Danielle Panabaker, Lucy Hale and Felicity Jones. Hunnam withdrew later due to scheduling conflicts with his show Sons of Anarchy. Alexander Skarsgård, François Arnaud, Billy Magnussen, Scott Eastwood and Luke Bracey were then front runners for Hunnam's replacement before Jamie Dornan was finally selected. Matthias Schoenaerts was also approached for the role of Christian Grey, but he told that he fell asleep while reading the script and his agent told him to stay out of it. See more »

Goofs

The morning after Ana drunk dials Christian, she comes out of the bathroom at the Heathman Suite in the clothes Taylor has bought for her. On the wing chair beside the bathroom door, we see the coral chiffon dress she later wears to dinner at Christian's parents' home. See more »

This movie raped my Intelligence
11 February 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is atrocious beyond words, and the first movie from which I've ever walked out (an hour and 17 minutes into it). The session was full of giggling middle-aged women, wetting themselves with anticipation - I cannot believe this book and movie has appeal. Are women really so bored, so desperate, that this is what gets them off?? The acting was appalling - I guess that's the end of Ms Johnson & Mr Dornan's careers. And I wouldn't be surprised if the actors who refused the role of Christian Grey are secretly relieved they had the sense to reject it! The script was laughable. No chemistry between the two leads. As for the 'eroticism'.....it was completely lacking. Stilted, awkward, poor cinematography, cheesy scripting. Just terrible.

Do not waste your time or money with this.
