Tribeca Movie Preview: Savage Grace

Tribeca Preview: Savage Grace


Similar to a few other Tribeca-bound movies like The Wackness and Baghead, Savage Grace was screened at this year's Sundance and I was disappointed to miss it. I adore Julianne Moore and am interested in seeing her in this difficult, controversial role as the real-life Barbara Daly Baekeland, a striking and charismatic woman who married Brooks Baekeland, heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune. The couple's only child, Antony, developed a unique relationship with his lonely mother in which they shared everything and which apparently delved into incest. This relationship ultimately drove Antony to murder his mother in November of 1972.

The reviews of Savage Grace have been rather mixed, and clearly the story is incredibly disturbing, but I'm curious to see how the filmmakers handle one of the most scandalous socialite stories in American history. To check out the trailer for Savage Grace,

Wow, I wouldn't care to see it if it wasn't based on a true story! Sometimes you can't make this up, Freud would've gone bananas. Julianne Moore is amazing, such an accomplished actress.

Wow. I have never even heard of this before. Crazy/Freaky story. :SHOCKED: Julianne is a great actress though so I think she would be able to pull off such a hard/deep character.
