Savage Grace: More Like Savage Gross

IFC films released this new trailer for its Julianne Moore Oscar-bait incest biopic just in time for Mother’s Day. Savage Grace is the famous true story of a socialite named Barbara Daly Baekeland, whose son Antony killed her after she tried to turn him straight by sleeping with him. Julianne Moore does look amazing in this, but can we just give her the Oscar without having to be creeped out by the mother-son stuff?

The trailer quotes Vogue’s Billy Norwich describing the film as “Like Death In Venice meets The Great Gatsby on the Psycho lot.” (He forgot Spanking The Monkey.)
