"Shainberg and Wilson have greatly enlarged Gaitskill's story... They know the kinks, the poses and the funny accouterments are finally beside the point. After all, it isn't how you find each other - it's that you do." - Los Angeles Times "In adapting [Gaiskill's story, Shainberg] has expanded it, fleshed it out, re-imagined it...recasting it as a fairy tale about erotic love." - Salon.comVom Verlag:
In the film that was awarded a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Lee Holloway is hired for a secretarial position at the law office of E. Edward Grey, despite having only recently been released from a mental institution. It is not long before Lee and Mr. Grey embark on a workplace S&M romance. Her family tries to lure her back into the conventional non-S&M world, but Lee, now fully aware of her deepest feelings, refuses to budge. Based on acclaimed short story by Mary Gaitskill, SECRETARY toys with our expectations of love, sexuality and intimacy, while exploring the delicate balance between pain and healing, control and surrender. Shot through with bold, unflinching humour and a strange yet seductive eroticism, SECRETARY is, at its core, a powerful and unique love story.
