Anastasia "Ana" Steele, the film's pulpily-named heroine, is a world-class expert at Not Doing Anything Ever.
Brooklyn artist Zefrey Throwell loves movies and he loves diagrams.
Inspired by infographics he discovered in an old NYPD detective manual, Zefrey has now combined both passions by silk-screening cryptic love letters to his favorite motion pictures.
She keeps up her alluring failure to do anything for the duration of their conversation.
She refuses to admit to any professional ambition, and then rejects Grey's offer of an internship.
Stammering unprofessionalism is as sexy to Christian Grey as the dance of the seven veils.
He is so immediately and inexplicably charmed that he cancels his next meeting so that he can spend more time with Anastasia.
’ The beautiful part is the diagram.”Raised in Alaska by a hippie mother, Throwell began cultivating an off-kilter art-making sensibility at age 18 when he ran off to Brazil and spent a year in Sao Paulo, surrounded by riots, free-form traffic jams, museum fires, and World Cup soccer delirium. After living on the West Coast, Throwell moved seven years ago to New York.
When he’s not painting, making films, orchestrating strip poker happenings or 1,000-car horn symphonies, Throwell can likely be found at the local movie house.
It's not a window into a world filled with kinky sex, of which there is shockingly little in the film.
