Director Sam Taylor-Johnson's big screen version of the initial book in the series, Fifty Shades of Grey, stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, an English Lit major on the verge of graduation when her best friend, a journalism major, gets sick and asks Anastasia to do an assignment for her -- interview Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the wealthy businessman who is speaking at their impending graduation ceremony. The two hit it off right away; the awkward young woman is immediately turned on by his power and control, and he's drawn to her naivete.~Perry Seibert
