Synopsis: Sadomasochism provides the backdrop for a very unusual
employer/employee relationship in this very offbeat romantic drama from
filmmaker Steven Shainberg. Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is a shy young
woman, who, after a brief spell in a mental institution, is released in the care
of her overprotective mother (Lesley Ann Warren) and hard-drinking father
(Stephen McHattie). Hoping to make good on her own, Lee begins looking for a
job, and in her free time indulges in her odd habit of inflicting pain upon
herself in various ways. Lee is hired as a secretary by E. Edward Grey (James
Spader), a grim and ruthlessly efficient attorney who warns her that her work
will be both dull and demanding. Lee takes to the job with genuine enthusiasm,
and while she's recently acquired a new boyfriend, Peter (Jeremy Davies), she's
far more intrigued by Grey's coldly patrician demeanor. While Grey often
criticizes Lee, she seems to thrive on his abuse, but one day he crosses a line
when he insists upon spanking her after some minor mistake. Lee quite enjoys the
treatment, and wants it to continue, but Grey can no longer take pleasure
humiliating Lee when he knows that she likes it; he fires her, despite her pleas
to be allowed to stay. Finally discovering the key to her sexual and emotional
needs, Lee tries to persuade Peter to be rough with her, but he simply doesn't
have the taste or talent for it, and Lee soon maps out a last-ditch effort to
win back her position with Grey, whatever the cost. Secretary won a special
award for "Originality" at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
