The plot ends with the shocking climax, in1972. Self-absorbed andshallow, the father Brooks Stephen Dillane , the son Antony EddieRedmayne , and the mother Barbara Julianne Moore go about their liveswith nary a care in the world. Curiously aloof and standoffish, the film suffers from an unfortunatestructure. We recognize that your privacy is important. Eventually, an ex-fling of Tony named Blanca Elena Anaya actually steals away and marries his father. Eddie Redmayne's portrayal of her homosexualson was for me the stand-out performance.
The parallels between these stories areremarkable. This movie is definitely a must-see! This is a family that shares baths, beds and lovers. Make no mistake, when I say that the Baekeland's ruin each other and bring about all of their own misfortune, I am not speaking lightly. Barbara, a lonely social climber unhappily married to the wealthy but remote plastics heir Brooks Baekeland, dotes on Antony, who is homosexual. Moore is flippant one moment and affected the next.

The performances are good,especially Juliane Moore, the film is extremely well crafted and asmuch as I bitch, it does hold your attention in the same way that abloody car wreck does you keep watching to see how bad it gets becauseyou know it has nothing to do with you. Besides, when all the debauchery becomes too much to handle, one can always look to Moore and bask in her brilliance.
The film's plot begins in1946 when Antony is a baby. The courage of director Tom Kalin is evident in tackling a story as weird, challenging and disturbing as Savage Grace. The acting was something that I would expect in a teen slasher film not a character driven period piece that focuses on the actors in the film. Vachon's films oftenportray unconventional sexuality or other challenging social themes,but in a stylised way that is more accessible to wider audiences thangrittier art-house films. None of these rich, idle people induce much empathy.
I saw the film last night, I was not appalled by the content like some others, but I felt that the film was delivered in such a way that it was impossible to be moved by its story. This is not a film that cookie cutters will appreciate. The final scenes which I have heard are anticlimactic, in my opinion were refreshingly realistic and not overly dramatic. As for it being episodic, it is because the son is telling the story through his letters and journals.

First time feature filmmaker and brave soul, Tom Kalin, tells their revolting yet tragic story in a manner that neither glorifies nor condemns their demented ways. All of theactors are very good but I felt as though I was watching a very veryBritish mannered drama.
The mainproblem is the script, and in particular the plot structure. Having seen quite a few films produced by Christine Vachon, Irecognised a similar aesthetic in this film. Those of us whodon't have money would like to think money cures problems, but as thismaterial shows, if you're sick, you're sick. The materials contained on this website are provided for general information purposes only. The Baekeland's come from money. This makes it all the more deplorable when Tony abandons reason to embrace his family heritage. Worth seeing for thebrave risks it takes and succeeds in delivering.
They have a son, Tony, and along the years the dysfunctional family lives in New York, France, Spain and England. One of her best performances, actually. As the film opens in New York City with Barbara now having an infant son named Tony, she still irritates Brooks with her yearning to be accepted in the social rich class society.
