Watch: Forget '50 Shades of Grey,' Watch 'Secretary' Instead

Though many a “Twilight” fan-fiction reader (yes that’s what “Fifty Shades of Grey” is) may flock to theaters come Valentine’s Day weekend, actual bondage dabblers might be more excited about the VOD and Digital HG release of 2002’s indie film “Secretary” and this new trailer that comes along with it.
“Secretary” stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, in one of her best performances, as a masochistic young woman who takes a job as a secretary for a Mr. E. Edward Grey, a lawyer with very particular interests, the original Mr. Grey, played brilliantly by James Spader.
Arguments have been made that the plot of “Fifty Shades of Grey” borders on abuse and doesn’t accurately depict a BDSM relationship. Therefore it would behoove those who wish to take a peak into the world to instead check out this film, which is not only funny and sexy as hell, but incorporates the compassion, trust and love that goes into such a relationship.
“Secretary” is now available on VOD and Digital HD. Check out the updated trailer below:
