Shortly before it was shown in cinemas in Iceland a message started spreading on Facebook where the movie was criticized for "emphasizing the fact that violent relationships are sought-after and supports the idea of rape". People were urged to donate the amount of the admission to a local women's shelter or the local Education and Counseling Center for Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence instead of seeing the film. Many accepted. See more »
Before Ana first enters Christian's playroom, we see her folding her hands at her back, then (in close-up) they are seen folded in front, then again behind, and eventually in front. See more »
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.
