The global phenomenon “Fifty Shades of Grey” is now available on Blu-Ray.
The film has grossed over half a billion dollars worldwide and was one of the most buzzed about events of the year. Based on a book of the same name by EL James, the Fifty Shades tells the story of a young woman name Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) who has an unlikely relationship with one of the world’s most eligible billionaires Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Anastasia’s roommate Kate has the flu, so she is unable to drive up to Seattle to interview one of their college’s most famous alums Christian Grey, who is the CEO of a telecommunications empire. He is delivering a keynote address at their graduation in a few weeks and Kate was supposed to interview him for their school newspaper. She sends Anastasia in her place.
When Anastasia arrives to conduct the interview, the connection is instant. Christian seems perfect, but he has a very dark secret. He aggressively pursues Anastasia showing up at the hardware store where she works for example. They start dating, but he soon reveals that he doesn’t really do relationships and his sexual practices involve bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism (BDSM). Anastasia is shocked when he shows her his “playroom.” She is conflicted because she has feelings for Christian, but is horrified by what he wants her to engage in. The unrated version of the film features some very steamy love scenes. Johnson gives a nuanced spunky performance as Anastasia and Dornan is the perfect Grey. Rita Ora has a cameo and Beyonce, The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding are on the soundtrack.
