The Things You Find on the Internets...


Cruising IMDB I found a link to watch the full length version of this new movie (albeit in a postage stamp sized window) based upon the book about the murder of socialite Barbara Baekeland at the hand of her disturbed son, Tony.  Savage Grace was also a book, which I read back in the day.  Having read it I cannot think how they were going to make it into a movie: without giving too much away Tony and Barbara have a relationship that Tennessee Williams would blanch at, and the movie doesn't shy away from any of it.  Julianne Moore is, as ever, wonderful, bringing grace and compassion to this tragic woman.  When it comes out I will go see it since it's a gorgeous looking movie, but much like the book, I will want to dry-clean my brain after.

Oh, and Julianne, two words: Light Comedy.  Now, before you become the female Jeremy Irons...

Isn't she mesmerizing?
I just read her interview with the Onion, and though unfamiliar with the true story of Lady Bakelite, your review of the film puts it squarely on my must see list.
