Savage Grace is a 2007 film about the dysfunctional, incestuous relationship between heiress and socialite Barbara Daly Baekeland (Julianne Moore) and her son, Antony (Eddie Redmayne). It is based on the book Savage Grace by Natalie Robins and Steven M.L. Aronson about the shocking Barbara Daly Baekeland murder case. The 1972 bloody crime caused a stir on both sides of the Atlantic and remains one of the most memorable American Tragedies.
Barbara married above her class to Brooks Baekeland, heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune. Their only child is a failure in his father’s eyes, and as he matures and becomes increasingly close to his lonely mother, the seeds for tragedy are sown.
The movie is steeped in amoral and sexual behavior among the idle rich, culminating in a sexual relationship between a mother and her son. Barbara is very promiscuous and Anthony makes same-sex encounters. There is also graphic conversations about sex, and a mother-son threesome.
