“The story was especially appealing and refreshing to us because of the woman’s point of view at the center,” Shaw told Variety.
The story follows a thirtysomething hairdresser on the brink of engagement and a life of predictable expectations. When she meets an married novelist at a party, he slips his fingers under her dress and a torrid affair begins unraveling both of their lives and those around them.

If the problem with too many literary adaptations is a failure to capture the author’s voice, then that shortcoming turns out to be the single greatest virtue of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the hotly anticipated first film inspired by E.L. James’ bestselling assault on sexual mores, good taste and the English language. In telling the story of a shy young virgin and the broodingly handsome billionaire who invites her into his wonderful world of hanky-spanky, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel have brought out a welcome element of cheeky, knowing humor that gradually recedes as the action plunges into darker, kinkier territory. Glossy, well cast, and a consistent hoot until it becomes a serious drag, this neo-“9½ Weeks” is above all a slick exercise in carefully brand-managed titillation — edgier than most grown-up studio fare, but otherwise a fairly mild provocation in this porn-saturated day and age.

In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »
