The actors are amazing in Secretary which could also be titled,"50 Shades of E. Edward Grey." The movie is basically a coming of age story combined with a s&m romance. Although I could only recommend this to the very open-minded there is a lot more emotion and passion between Grey and Lee than I've seen in many other romantic movies.

Probably the best film about a consensual dominant/submissive relationship ever made !! ( Kev's PICkS : For an interesting double feature ,.. see this film in tandem with "The Blue Angel".)

The funny thing is, this movie came out in 2003. That's nearly ten years before that cheeky chick lit 50 shades took the world by storm. See the movie, you'll get it. 50 shades, which I haven't read, devulges into all the rules of a truly cruel dominant, but Maggie's character knew what made James Spader tick. You just get it right away. No 1,000s of pages neccessary. Highly Recommended.

Emotionally exhausting movie about an abusive boss. The weird thing is that the secretary likes it. This is a ultimately a love story, but one I can't relate to.
