FIFTY SHADES DARKER picks up shortly after Fifty Shades of Grey leaves off: Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) have broken up, and she's about to start a job as an assistant at an independent book publisher. But that doesn't mean Christian's not keeping tabs on Ana: He manages to quickly woo her back by saying he wants a real relationship, not just a dominant-submissive contract. As Christian and Ana attempt a "regular" romance, Christian can't stop his compulsion to control her. As a result, he's jealous of her handsome boss, Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson), and introduces her to the older woman who first seduced, abused, and dominated him as a teen, Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger). Meanwhile a young, vaguely threatening young woman seems to be stalking Ana.
