QUICK TAKE:
Erotic Drama: A billionaire and a publishing assistant decide to take their kinky relationship to the next level even as forces from his past conspire against them.
PLOT:
Anastasia Steele (DAKOTA JOHNSON) has moved on from her sadomasochistic relationship with billionaire Christian Grey (JAMIE DORNAN). But Christian has not moved on from her. He convinces her to have one dinner with him at which he asks her to "renegotiate the terms" of their relationship and promises to change his ways. He is more attentive and understanding. But he still exhibits much jealousy and has a need to control Ana.

Since their break-up, Ana has gone to work for a publishing company where she is the assistant to dashing fiction editor, Jack Hyde (ERIC JOHNSON). Christian is immediately jealous of the man, makes a move to acquire the company, and promptly forbids Ana from traveling on business with Jack. After Jack sexually harasses Ana, Christian has him fired and Ana is promptly promoted to Jack's job. Meanwhile, Ana is being stalked by a deranged, former submissive girlfriend of Christian's named Leila (BELLA HEATHCOTE). Ana is also threatened by Elena Lincoln (KIM BASINGER), the older woman who introduced Christian to the world of S&M years earlier.

Through it all, the perils bring Ana and Christian closer together and their sexual trysts get increasingly extreme and passionate. This all culminates in a decision by Christian to take their relationship to the ultimate level -- something that delights his adoptive parents, Grace and Carrick (MARCIA GAY HARDEN and ANDREW AIRLIE, respectively); brother, Elliot (LUKE GRIMES); and sister Mia (RITA ORA).

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
