anne_f_’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fifty Shades of Grit would have been more interesting. This is a badly acted film with no sense of attraction between its leads (Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan) and which doesn't tell the viewer anything about either romance or BDSM. I hope that young men won't watch it (this isn't a representation of how any loving human being acts) and that young women won't watch it either (this isn't a representation of how any loving human being acts). The film may well be better than the book, but I understand that it would have been difficult to be worse.
