Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), 21, is studying at Washington State University. She takes a writing assignment for the school paper to interview Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), a 27-year-old successful and wealthy entrepreneur. Although she finds him intimidating, she's instantly attracted to Christian.

He later shows up at the hardware store where she works part time and buys cable ties, masking tape and rope. They begin a relationship, but beforehand, he asks her to sign a non-disclosure agreement forbidding her to discuss anything that they do together. She learns he's into BDSM and he then asks her to sign a second contract consenting to dominance and submission and tells her their relationship will not be romantic.

  • 1 star "Unwatchable. I don´t get the hype about this movie."
  • 5 stars "I LOVED IT!!!!"
  • 2 stars "I have read 100's of BDSM and erotic literature over the years. Read all the 50 shades books and now the movie. The books get flack due to non violence against women and BDSM communities. Some of it is not a realistic interpretation of BDSM and I believe some are confusing violence for consensual relationships involving BDSM as well. Frankly I think both are correct, though in the book the characters at least communicated effectively. Overall I disliked the the first half. It was like watching a MTV Video scene after scene and no sparks from the characters initially. Then you finally get to the racy scenes and it's like I'm watching a science experiment. Thank god this director for the next movie. Though I don't really know how you could improve on something that should never have been put to film."
