When the whole 50 Shades shebang came out, my first thought was: "they did a bad rip-off of Secretary!". Then, from what I hear about the movie, the rip-off got worse. Secretary, on the other hand, is great fun to rewatch again and again. It's touching, erotic and although I love the angle it has on BDSM , more importantly it shows how happy you can be when you ignore the outside noise and do your own thing.
Great soundtrack and direction. This is an unusual romance but it is in effect a love story. It's very divisive and some may find James Spader incredibly creepy and be unable to watch. See this film with an open mind
This is a dark love story with some black humours. For the themes supplied here, it's very original with unusual subject matter that downright bizarre, quirky, rauncy and totally off-beat. And it is such a pure delight to see Maggie's portrayal of the character and the chemistry between the two lead casts.
