“Secretary” (2002) “Who says that love has to be soft and mild? ”
Considering Mary Gaitskill’s “Bad Behavior, ” “Secretary” appears favorably vanilla in comparison to lots of the other movies about this list; at the least, it is the tamest one starring James Spader.
This film follows the basic romantic formula of two people who have to overcome obstacles to be together for all its kinks. But alternatively compared to the rom-com that is standard involving misunderstandings, defectively conceived wagers or tradition clashes, this Steven Shainberg movie focuses on the positioning of a new girl along with her employer’s particular kinks.
