Literature student Anastasia Steele's life changes forever when she meets handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey.
The initial audition for the role of Anastasia Steele included reading a monologue from Ingmar Bergman's film, Persona (1966). The monologue was utilized to see if the actress could maturely and comfortably handle the film's subject matter.
The woman that gave birth to me was a crack addict and a prostitute. She died when I was four. I remember certain things. Terrible things. I don't remember her. Sometimes I think I see her in my dreams.
During the contract negotiation, Anastasia has all of her hair resting on her back. When Christian points out that she is pressing her thighs together, you can see a little bit of her hair and it is all pulled to one side in front of her shoulder. When the scene cuts back to Anastasia, her hair is behind her again and she doesn't pull it to the side until moments later.
