Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal, in an acclaimed performance), a shy young woman who struggles with self-harm, takes a job as the secretary for the demanding and mysterious lawyer E. Edward Grey (James Spader, in his second appearance in Hot & Heavy!). As she fetches coffee and he criticizes her typing skills, the sexual tension builds, and a powerful BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, and masochism) relationship develops between them. Exploring themes of control, self-acceptance, and unconventional care, SECRETARY is a sincere story of true love (and spanking).
