Savage Grace (2007)

Savage indeed! This is one of those sad true stories that reveals the underbelly of a sinful race of humans, exacerbated by wealth.

Tony is born into privilege and to a psychotic mother and fed-up father. The family lives nomadically traveling from villa to villa in Europe. It becomes clear that Tony suffers from neglect from his father and unnatural attention from his mother. No good results.

From a cinematic perspective, the film scores high. The progression of darkness is steady and the tension brews for quite a while before a stark and brutal finish. The actors superbly perform as the camera gives us perhaps too much to see.
