“Oh, you better believe that’s a paddlin’.”

Possibly paying tribute to discipline-loving old coot Jasper on The Simpsons, this darkly-humorous tale hits all the right … notes.

James Spader is a tightly-strung lawyer with a fondness for the spanking arts, while the sublime Maggie Gyllenhaal is his new employee, a woman searching for direction in her life after being hospitalized.

Two outsiders looking for someone to understand their innermost urges, they form an unusual, but successful duo.

The result is like if you took the God-awful Fifty Shades of Grey series, and substituted strong writing and quality acting.

What a concept.
