I appreciate the controversy surrounding it.
This was a good movie primarily because of Dakota Johnson’s performance.
It was solid story telling, enough so to make me want to learn more about the title character Christian Grey. Books(s)here I come. Johnson’s performance inspires the compassion required for the theme of sadomasochism via Anastasia’s point of view.
Also, I love that one of my favorite TheWeeknd songs, Earned It, is in this film!
It’s placement was the perfect topping for this dark, erotic romance.
