Can't wait for Fifty Shades of Grey next weekend? Neither can we, but maybe this will hold you over.

Before film director Sam Taylor-Johnson worked on the sexy story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele (and back when she was still Sam Taylor-Wood), she directed a short film called Love You More. It's about two English teenagers who bond over a Buzzcocks album in the summer of 1978 and...um, get to know each other. Warning: The 15-minute film is a little bit NSFW. 

Harry Treadaway and Andrea Riseborough star as the smitten students. Fun fact: You might recognize Riseborough from Birdman

Love You More, named after the Buzzcocks song, was released in 2008. Taylor-Johnson is the same director behind the 2009 hit Nowhere Boy, about John Lennon.

She famously married actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who happens to be about half her age, in 2011.

But if you've heard her name lately, it's probably because she's also responsible for bringing sexy back in 50 Shades of Grey, the upcoming S&M love story based on the 2011 erotic novel from E. L. James. Jamie Dornan plays A handsome businessman with an um...dark side, Christian Grey.
