Savage Grace

Fortnight 2007, Feature film, 1h37


Savage Grace, based on the award winning book is the incredible true story of Barbara Daly, who married above her class to Brooks Baekeland, the heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune. Beautiful, red-headed and charismatic, Barbara is still no match for her well-bred husband. The birth of the couple’s only child, Tony, rocks the uneasy balance in this marriage of extremes. Tony is a failure in his father’s eyes. As he matures and becomes increasingly close to his lonely mother, the seeds for a tragedy of spectacular decadence are sown.
