Truth is more shocking than fiction.
This examination of a famous scandal from the 1970s explores the relationship between Barbara Baekeland (Julianne Moore) and her only son, Antony (Eddie Redmayne). Barbara, a lonely social climber unhappily married to the wealthy but remote plastics heir Brooks Baekeland (Stephen Dillane), dotes on Antony, who is homosexual. As Barbara tries to "cure" Antony of his sexuality -- sometimes by seducing him herself -- the groundwork is laid for a murderous tragedy.

Everything about the making of this film is beautiful. I must say though once will be enough for me. It was very disturbing and sad especially since it is true. It is a lot to take in. This is very warped. Great movie but too much for me.
