RUNNING TIME: 1hr 58 minutes
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.
This little Twilight fan fiction franchise has turned heads and taken names. Fifty Shades Darker is the movie adaptation of the book by the same name. This is the second movie in this franchise. I felt there was more plot to this second movie and the development of the relationship between Christian and Anastasia could be observed. I particularly enjoyed Bella Heathcote’s role as Christians ex-submissive Leila who wants Christian back. There are other big names within this movie that round out a star studded cast. The cinematography was beautiful with some amazing panoramic shots that were breathtaking.
There were certainly moments in this film that I felt uncomfortable watching the screen in a local cinema. Overall, I felt this was a faithful adaptation of the source material with some decent plot points.
