Why Fifty Shades of Grey was such a big hit
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is an erotic romantic drama movie which was directed by Taylor Johnson. This movie was based on a bestselling novel written a British author, E. L. James. The movie became such a big hit for few reasons. It was based on a very popular book with the same name as the movie, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. The book sold 100 million copies.The second reason for the film’s popularity is because it deals with an issue which people are often obsessed with-sex. The film was first shown at the 65thBerlin International Film Festival on February 11, 2015. Universal Pictures release the film for the general public on February 13, 2015 and the film became an instant box office hit grossing over $485 million.
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ starred film stars, Dakota Johnson featured as Anastasia Steele (Ana) who was involved in a strange love relationship with a business entrepreneur by name Christian Grey, featured as Jamie Doman. The relationship began as an unplanned event. Ana’s roommate Kate Kavanagh was to go and interview Christian in his office but she was ill so her roommate Ana went in her place and one thing led to another and Ana went to a club and had too much to drink and found herself on Christian’s hotel bed the following morning. Ana and Christian did not have sex that night they both said..
Strange Love Relationship
Ana fell in love with Christian who urged her to sign a non disclosure agreement that she would not tell anyone whatever happens in their relationship. As Ana contemplates signing the document she also wanted to negotiate some terms for herself in the relation. Christian expresses interest in sub-cultural relationship known as controlled bondage, and at that point Ana revealed the fact that she is a virgin. Before the document terms could be finalized, Ana and Christian began having sex in accordance with Christian’s sexual style preference. Christian loves rough and painful sex and seems to only enjoy sex when pain is associated with it. One thought that always cross my mind when men say they love painful sex is at whose expense? Anyway as it turned out, Christian’s controlled bondage is often referred to as BDSM an abbreviation for ‘bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and sadism and masochism’. This type of sex deals with all kinds of sexual experimentation and because Ana loved him dearly she let Christian have his way sexually with his hot and kinky sex.
The Raging Controversy over ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
The controversy that was generated by the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie is that this may be an attempt to rationalize and may be normalize sex and violence as part of the mainstream culture. Two views have emerged. Some people say that what two consenting adults do in their sex life is nobody’s business. The other opinion is that the sexual violence involved in Ana and Christian’s relationship is not consensual. What's your take? You decide.
