Fifty Shades of Grey

Synopsis: When college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair -- and learns that Christian's true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.

Ana, take my car.

I gave you the recorder right?

- Oh, yes.

- And you have all the questions?

- Yes.

- And you know where you're going?

Yes, I do have a GPS, and a four point GPA.

- I can figure it out.

- You're wearing that?

Okay, a little less talking, more eating.

Miss Kavanagh?

- May I take your coat?

- Oh, yes.

Ella... Ella... Okay.

- Mr Grey will see you now.

- Okay.

- This way please.

- Okay.

Mr Grey is in a conference at 11:15.

Right this way.

Miss Kavanagh, are you alright?

- Christian Grey.

- I'm Anastasia Steele.

Miss Kavanagh has the flu,

so she asked me to fill in.

I see, so you're studying

journalism as well?

No. English literature Kate's my roommate.

As I said, I only have 10 minutes.

Please, have a seat Miss Steele.


- Ready?

- Whenever you are.


So this is for the special graduation issue

of the student newspaper.

Yes I'm giving the commencement address

at this year's ceremony.

You are?

I mean um I know.

You are very young to

have amassed an empire.

- To what do you owe...

- To what do I owe my success?

- Yep.

- Seriously?


Business is about people, and

I've always been good at people.

What motivates them, what inspires them.

Well maybe you're just lucky

I've always seen, the more hard eye

work, the more luck I seem to have.

The key to my success is

identifying talents in individuals.

- And harnessing their efforts.

- You're a control freak?

Oh I exercise control in

all things Miss Steele.

Okay um, your company is involved primarily

in the telecommunications sector.

Yet you also invest in numerous

agricultural projects.

Including several in Africa. Is that

something you feel passionate about?

Feeding the world's poor?

Its smart business.

You don't agree?

I don't know enough about it.

I just wonder, if you're heart might be

a bit bigger than you want to let on?

But some people say I don't have a heart.

- Why would they say that?

- Because they know me well.


Do you have any interests outside of work?

I enjoy various physical pursuits.

You're unmarried, oh you

were adopted at age four.

That's a matter of public record.

I'm sorry I didn't...

Do you have an actual

question, Miss Steele?


Are you gay?

Its written here, I'm just...

No, Anastasia. I'm not gay.

I apologise, Mr Grey

Kate can be a little...

- Intrusive?

- Curious.

What about you?

Why don't you ask me

something you wanna know?

Earlier you said that there are some

people who know you well.

Why do I have the feeling

that that is not true?

Mr Grey, your next meeting

is in the conference room.

Cancel it please, we're not finished here.

Yes sir.

No I um I can go.

- Its fine.

- I would like to know more about you.

There's not really much to know about me.

You said you're in English literature? Tell

me was it Charlotte Bront, Jane Austen

or Thomas Hardy, who made you fall in love

with literature?


I would've guessed Jane Austen.

What are your plans for after you graduate?

I'm just trying to get through my finals.

- And then?

- Then I was planning on moving here

to Seattle with Kate.

We offer an excellent internship program

I don't think I'd fit in here.

- Look at me.

- I am.

Mr Grey's office

I hope you got everything you needed

I think you only answered four questions.
