Fifty Shades of Grey film is “tasteful and artistic”

Eloise Mumford, who plays Anastasia Steele’s roommate Kate Kavanagh, has revealed that the much-anticipated adaptation is "going to be beautiful"


If you’re hoping for a seriously steamy trip to the cinema when Fifty Shades of Grey is released next year, you might be disappointed…


Star Eloise Mumford, who plays Kate Kavanagh in the big screen adaptation of EL James’ naughty novel, has revealed that the film is far from dark and dirty, calling it instead “tasteful and artistic.”

“I knew right away it would be tasteful and artistic,” she told E!, adding: “The cinematographer is Seamus McGarvey. He did Anna Karenina. It’s going to be beautiful.”

When it comes to the exploits of Anastasia and Christian Grey, it sounds as though fans might not get to see those risky bedroom scenes at the cinema, with the film set to focus less on inner goddesses and more on the pair’s fledgling relationship.

“In the end, the story really is a romance and a love story so it’s about that more than anything,” she said.

Mumford stars alongside Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in the film, which is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.  


Fifty Shades of Grey will be in cinemas 13 February 2015.
