Fifty Shades of Grey Movie BANNED in Kenya

February 11, 2015

shadesAs if they did not learn from the banning of blockbuster movie ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, Kenya Film Classification board has gone ahead and banned steamy movie Fifty Shades of Grey.
The film is expected to premiere in the US this Valentines, and would probably have screened in Kenyan theatres in coming weeks, but that’s not gonna happen now.
The movie is an adaptation of the heavily popular 2011 erotic romance novel by the same name, written by British author E.L James. It is the first installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey.
American actress Dakota Johnson plays Anastasia while Jamie Dornan plays Christian Grey.
From the experience of The Wolf of Wall Street, banning a film only serves to popularize it, especially after all the blogs write about it.
Here are a few reactions from KOT.

I think some of the things the classification board does to remain relevant are just primitive. Banning a film because it’s erotic in 2015..? They should get our phones and see some of the sites Kenyans visit.
