About this movie

James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal star in the dark comedy Secretary. Praised as "daring, funny and quirkily erotic!" (Glenn Kenny, PREMIERE) and "sexy and highly stylized" (GEAR magazine), Secretary is the story of Lee Holloway (Gyllenhaal), a young woman with a few strikes against her after a brief stay in a mental hospital, who accepts a secretarial position working at the law office of E. Edward Grey (Spader). The work seems normal at first, but somewhere between the typing, filing and coffee-making, Lee and her new boss cross the line of their professional relationship and enter into a Human Resources nightmare!

I just watched this for the first time last night. It was not what I expected. It was mostly just funny to my SO and me and only mildly arousing. I can see a lot of potential and it was definitely an entertaining movie but didn't have the result I was hoping for. I'd still watch it again, though, because the whole boss/secretary thing is hot af.

This movie was perfect. I do believe this was ,the kind of movie people who were disappointed in the B.S. BDSM movie released recently were expecting. Well, they should've stayed home with this one instead because it was done right.

A BDSM relationship that slowly grows and matures between a employer and employee. Because I have read books based off of this kind of relationship I was not left feeling "soiled" or "insulted". It's an interesting movie and I think many adults should give it a chance. Obviously not for children.
