FIFTY SHADES FREED (18)
The rump and pump of EL James’ literary threesome, adapted for the screen by Kelly Marcel and the author’s husband, Niall Leonard, comes to a headboard-thumping climax in Fifty Shades Freed, directed by James Foley. When we left heroine Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) at the end of Fifty Shades Darker, her riding crop-wielding beau – buff billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) – had just emerged unscathed from crash-landing his helicopter, and lecherous fiction editor Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson) was poised to wreak revenge on Ana for getting him the sack.
In the third and final picture, Ana walks down the aisle to Christian in front of friends and family including his mother Grace (Marcia Gay Harden), brother Elliot (Luke grimes) and sister Mia (Rita Ora). The happy couple look forward to building a new life together in a luxurious home but the return of Jack puts them in jeopardy. They rely on bodyguards to keep them safe while Ana has unfinished business with Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger), who seduced Christian when he was 15.
It’s time for Mrs Steele-grey (ho ho!) to stand by her man.
