In search of relief from herself and her oppressive childhood environment, she starts to date a nerdy friend from high school and takes a job as a secretary in a local law firm, soon developing an obsessive crush on her older boss, Mr. Grey. Through their increasingly bizarre relationship, Lee follows her deepest longings to the heights of masochism and finally to a place of self-affirmation. Written by Sujit R. Varma (taken from IMDB)
 
Why or Why Not to Experience it: This is a fantastic dark comedy that is as touching and empowering as it is funny and sexy. See this film.
