Well it’s because the plot isn’t about finding out about his secret, it’s about Ana’s exploration of said secret only to learn she’s in too far and doesn’t feel comfortable in the relationship. The sequels deal with a lawsuit I believe.
Ah! So it’s an internal conflict. Which is fine, and now I can understand how the plot can progress in a forward motion.
But I guess this leaves me wondering if Ana is all that interesting to follow in her confusions about her predicament and how it steps back from being another romance-y film. (aside from the obvious of course, because if that’s the only thing that sets it apart then… to me, that’s not good)

I think my major problem with the 50 Shades of Grey film has to do with how do you tell this story for two hours? I mean it might just be my lack of having read the book, but from a cinematic standpoint, it seems like the conflict gets resolved rather easily. Grey has a secret, character finds out that secret, character copes with secret until some resolution comes around revolving that secret, roll credits. And we saw all of that within the trailer. Unless there’s some other conflict that I’m missing here, that doesn’t seem to sustain a two hour film.
It’s not even that it’s a softcore porn film because it’s not like we haven’t spent money to see softcore porn in film. That, to me, is not the issue.
I care about how you keep a plot like that moving forward.
