Film of the day: Fity Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker

Nipple clamps, silver balls, spanking – it’s all going on in the steamy second instalment of the film series based on the bestselling books by EL James.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return as the bookish Anastasia Steele and damaged billionaire playboy Christian Grey, the latter winning back the former by promising to tone down the kink, at least a little bit anyway. Trouble isn’t too far away, though.

Before long Christian’s shady past threatens to derail everything all over again, with former lovers Bella Heathcote and Kim Basinger both up to no good. James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross, House of Cards) directs, while Niall Leonard (Mr EL James) takes care of the script.

Fifty Shades Darker – from Friday 3 November on Sky Cinema on demand and Sky Cinema Premiere.
