Should you watch 50 Shades of Grey?

Should you watch 50 Shades of Grey?

Now that we have your attention…. Every week, The Big Picture team of Mark Hadley and Ben McEachen discuss movies, TV and screen content — from a Christian perspective. This week, they’re braving the controversial territory of 50 Shades of Grey, the movie version of the bestselling book. Out now on Blu-ray, DVD and streaming online, this highly publicised tale of a sexually explicit relationship between a shy woman and her dominant boss has been a huge talking point. But should followers of Jesus be going anywhere near such graphic, confronting material? Check out Mark and Ben’s discussion, as Mark reviews the film — on its own merits — before they pose deeper questions about healthy relationships, social changes, and what can a Christian set before their eyes?

In other, less risky, business this week, The Big Picture duo takes on Netflix TV series Daredevil, the latest superhero offering seeking your support.  And for something completely different, press play below to witness Mark gushing about how rock’n’roll journey Almost Famous includes one of the best uses of music ever in a movie. That’s right. Ever!
