At last it really does hit the big screen: FEMTIO NUANSER AV HONOM (Swedish for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY… alas, not with Alexander Skarsgård and not by Lars von Trier, as we’d have suggested 😉 – So let’s have a look, who’s up to the task now: Director Sam(antha) Taylor-Johnson promises great cinematography (as in how she composed her short LOVE YOU MORE ,and as you can see in the 50 Shades trailer). The main character, overconfident/conflicted super-rich abused-as-a-child Christian Grey is exactly what Taylor-Johnson sees as her artistic goal: “The split between being and appearance in situations where the line between interior and external sense of self is in conflict – has always been in the centre of her creative work.”
Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey has that certain je-ne-sais-quoi … he will pull it off … the role (well, his shirt too, repeatedly, duh! ;))
Dakota Johnson (not related to the director) plays Anastasia Steele, the shy but tough reporter who will succeed to capture Grey’s tormented soul – an apt choice, we’d say.
I am looking forward to this work of art.
