Fifty Shades Filmed

I’ve been kinda ambivalent about it. I liked the books, but have read others in the genre before and since that I enjoyed more. I’ll see the movie, of course, and I’m self-aware enough to know I’ll be hot for Jamie after watching, despite my lack of enthusiasm for the casting.  🙂

I have a lot of friends in common with Kelly Marcel and Dana Brunetti (screenwriter and producer) and have interacted with them a bit online in my screenwriting life. My hopes for the movie were dismal until they were involved, but I thought if anyone could make a film adaptation without it becoming a total joke, it would be them. And per this Vanity Fair review, it appears they succeeded! Yay!!

Regardless of anyone’s opinion of the books or the movie, this series has opened a lot of eyes and minds, especially here in the uptight, Bible-belted USA. It’s created a massive cultural evolution, and I’m excited to play a teen-tiny, smut-writing part in it.


About Julie Jaret

Julie Jaret is an American screenwriter with one feature film produced and some others on deck. Her alter-ego needed an outlet, so here we are. Julie lives in the southeast U.S. with her sexy and supportive husband, two funny and beautiful kids, and one big doofus of a dog. She enjoys living vicariously through her fictional characters, often to the point of distraction... (Luckily, her hubby and kids know not to expect dinner at a certain time. Or at all.)

  1. I agree….not too fussed about Jamie right now but I’m sure I will be after I see the movie! I hope you don’t mind me asking but as you have a photo here (and seem to be an accomplished blogger!) would you be able to advise me (a newbie!) how to go about finding photos that I am allowed to use on my blog? I have done some research but am still very confused and scared to do it! Thank you x

  2. LOL! I wouldn’t say I’m an accomplished blogger, but you’re smart to be careful about photo rights. This photo is the one included with the Vanity Fair review. It’s what came up when I shared the link. As for general photo use in blogs, I’m not informed enough to advise you — most of the photos I post here are covers or teasers for my own work.

    Good luck with your blog! xo
