50 SHADES OF GREY...... Movie and SICK MINDS!!



Fifty Shades of Grey (film)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2015 American erotic romantic drama film directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson with a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. Based on British author E. L. James' bestselling novel of the same name, the film stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, a college graduate who begins a sadomasochistic relationship with young business magnate Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
The film premiered at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival on February 11, 2015 and had a wide theatrical release on February 13, 2015 by Universal Pictures.[3][4]Although the film received mixed reviews from critics, it was an immediate box office success, earning more than $410 million. A sequel is planned for a 2016 release.[5]


Anastasia 'Ana' Steele is a college undergraduate attending college near Vancouver and shares an apartment with her roommate Kate Kavanagh. Ana agrees to interview a young corporate executive, Christian Grey, at his company headquarters in Seattle for the college newspaper, after Kate becomes ill. When Ana meets him for the interview, Christian appears to show an interest in her and, soon after the interview ends, he arrives by "accident" at the hardware store where Ana is working part-time. After some ensuing small-talk, Christian agrees to participate in a photo shoot which Ana requests to accompany her college newspaper interview.
The photo shoot later takes place and Christian continues to show an interest in Ana. He invites her to stop at a coffee shop together. After talking some more to her, Christian is sufficiently impressed by Ana that he arranges to have first editions of Tess of the d'Urbervilles sent to her home after learning of her interest in literature during their conversation. On that same day, Ana goes out on the town drinking with her friends, and calls Christian spontaneously after having too much to drink. Christian senses she is drunk, asks her where she is, and decides to go personally and ask her to leave the bar. Before passing out, Ana sees Kate flirting with Christian's brother, Elliot. Ana wakes up in Christian's hotel room and is relieved to find she did not have sex with Christian.
Not overly worried about this awkward start, Ana and Christian begin dating soon thereafter and Christian asks Ana to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding their relationship. Christian expresses an interest in exploring a subculture relationship with Ana involving controlled bondage. Ana appears to agree though she admits to be sexually naïve and that she is still sexually unenlightened and uninitiated. Ana and Christian soon engage in a sexual relationship along with some of the sexual experimentation which Christian had earlier indicated he wanted with her.
During the next few days, Christian begins to shower Ana with unexpected gifts and favors, such as a new car and laptop. One night, Ana accompanies Christian to a dinner at his parents' house, meeting Christian's father and sister. During dinner, Ana reveals she will be leaving the next day to visit her mother in Georgia. This infuriates Christian as Ana reveals she wants a relationship that is more romantic than sexual. Ana leaves and is shocked when Christian surprises her while she is drinking with her mother. The next morning, Christian takes Ana on a date in his glider. Christian leaves soon after as there is an emergency in Seattle.
Not long after returning home, Ana still sees Christian. Christian continues to express an interest in further sexual experimentation to which Ana initially consents and participates in willingly. Christian, however, continues to wish to keep Ana at a distance emotionally, which is upsetting to Ana. Ana then asks Christian to show her what he really wants. They have an ensuing sexual encounter where Christian shows an excessive desire to use his own variety of rough sex. Ana senses this as disturbing and not within the bounds of her more romantic expectations of Christian. Ana becomes resolved that Christian is wrong for her and that she believes that Christian's experimentation borders on being deviant and excessive. At her insistence, the two part company in the hallway outside his apartment.

Rating and censorship[edit]

There was initial speculation that the film could receive NC-17 rating in the United States. Studios typically steer away from the adults-only rating due to the impact the classification has on a film's commercial viability, with some theater chains refusing to exhibit NC-17 rated films. While screenwriter Marcel said she expected the film to be NC-17 rated,[92] producer De Luca anticipated the less restrictive R rating.[93] On January 5, 2015, the MPAA did give the film an R rating, basing its decision on "strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity, and language."[94]
On January 30, in Australia, the film was rated MA15+ by the ACB for "strong sex scenes, sexual themes and nudity".[95] On February 2, 2015, the British BBFC classified the film an 18 certificate, mentioning "strong sex".[1] In Canada, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia, the film was rated at 18A by the OFRBMFCB, AFR, and BCFCO respectively due to its "occasional upsetting or disturbing scenes, and partial or full nudity in a brief sexual situation."[96][97] In Quebec, the Régie du cinéma rated the movie under the 16+ category for its eroticism.[98] In France, the film earned a 12 rating.[99] In Lebanon, the film earned an NC-21 rating.[100]
Anti-pornography watchdog group Morality in Media argued that the film's R rating "severely undermines the violent themes in the film and does not adequately inform parents and patrons of the film’s content", and that the MPAA was encouraging sexual violence by letting the film by without an NC-17 rating.[101][102]
The film was scheduled for a February 12, 2015 release in Malaysia, but it was denied a certificate by the Malaysian Film Censorship Board (LPF) for its "unnatural" and "sadistic" content. The LPF chairman, Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, said Fifty Shades was "more pornography than a movie."[103][104] The film was also banned in Indonesia,[105] Kenya,[105] Russia's North Caucasus,[106] the United Arab Emirates (UAE),[107] Papua New Guinea,[108] and Cambodia.[109] The film was released in Nigeria for a week, before being removed from cinemas by the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB).[110] Studios will not pursue a theatrical release in China.[105]
The film's sex scenes were censored after protests from various religious groups in the Philippines, and as a result it is in limited release in that country.[104] A similarly cut version was released in Zimbabwe.[111]
