Savage Grace

Directed by Tom Kalin

Kalin’s swoon was a key film of the New Queer Cinema. This second feature also explores an infamous true crime through a queer prism – the 1972 murder of an American socialite by her son. Moore is excellent as Barbara Daly Baekeland who marries into a plastics fortune. After her husband leaves her, she concentrates her smothering attentions on her gay son. When both find themselves attracted to the same man, trouble follows.
