Last night I had the pleasure of going to see Fifty Shades of Grey. I was the only one in our group of about 20 women who had not read the books. I will say the movie left me wanting more. It was the equivalent of soft porn. However, I did read only 15 minutes of the movies 125 minutes were the sex scenes. The movie is exactly what I knew it would be; not an Oscar contender, but a fun Big Girl’s Night Out flick. All Red Room scenes aside, I did enjoy the love story unfolding. In the end, I loved the way they loved each other. There were two great lines in the movie. One was said by Anastasia’s mother. She said, “Life doesn’t get easier, you just get to know yourself better.” She is so right. Christian Grey said the other line to Anastasia, “I can’t leave you.” It is that moment when you are struggling with feelings, choices, comfort zones, your reality changing and the only thing you know for certain is that you cannot let go. What do you do? That is where this story led us and that is why we will be racing to the theatre to see the next Fifty Shades of Grey. What happens? Does he work out his demons so he can love her the way she needs to be loved? Does she stay and love him the way he feels he needs to be loved? Do they compromise because like the story shows, there is a deep love there. Is it one for which they will be willing to fight?
I’m not sure I can wait that long to know, I may have to buy the books. Definitely haute!
Happy Valentine’s Day Mamas!
