Description

Storyline

Secretary, An emotionally fragile woman recently released from a mental hospital for self mutilation goes to school to gain secretarial skills to gain employment. She has an alcoholic father and a co-dependent mother who are clueless as to who she really is which a tormented soul who really wants to find something with which she can find success. She is a great secretary and finds a job with a unique, old fashioned, but off center in charge boss with a somewhat sadistic sexual proclivity. She grows and evolves and so does he.

When a Masochist Meets a Sadistic – An Unconventional Love Story

 
Secretary, Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is a self-destructive and submissive woman, with suicide tendencies, who has just left a sanatorium after a breakdown. She has a kind of kit in a box for self-inflicting pain when she feels in trouble. Lee decides to get a typing course and when she finishes it, she decides to look for a job of secretary. She finds an advertisement in the newspaper, goes to an office, and the lawyer E. Edward Grey (James Spader) hires her. The details is that Edward is sadistic and a very dominating man, who humiliates Lee most of the time. Of course they will fall in love for each other, after many funny situations. This low budget movie is a wonderful unconventional romantic comedy, one of the weirdest I have ever seen, supported by excellent lead actor and actress and an original screenplay. The always-excellent James Spader is one of my favorite actors, and Maggie Gyllenhaal gives also an extraordinary performance in this film. The situations that Lee uses to tease Edward are hilarious.

A daring adventure

 

This film is about a woman who frequently harms herself finding a job as a lawyers secretary. Soon she finds out that she has got herself more than just a job.

“Secretary” is provocative and controversial. It sparks moral debate as to whether the lawyer is taking advantage of a young woman with psychiatric issues. Putting this matter aside, “Secretary” is an engaging and entrancing film. The sexual tension between Mr Grey and Miss Holloway is palpable. How they desire each other, how they control each other and how they need each other are brilliantly portrayed. “Secretary” is a daring sexual drama that takes viewers to adventurous zones.
