Ever since I saw the trailer and read the synopsis for this film – I’ve been dying to watch it!
As John Powers from Vogue Magazine reviewed it best: “A tabloid fiesta of money, kinky sex, and murder. You keep watching to see what could possibly happen next.”
It’s an amazing film! The acting was superb! The story was a bit disturbing in some scenes, but even more disturbing is the fact that it’s based on a TRUE story.
I really admired Julianne Moore in this film. The real delights for me were (British actors & male models) Eddie Redmayne and Hugh Dancy. They are amazing actors that truly will do almost anything to capture the essence of a role/character for a film.
The film is told through Antony Baekeland’s point of view – regarding his wealthy family and their fabulously lavish, yet tragic story.
There is a true essence in this film and I really loved it! Unlike most Hollywood movies which butcher the essence of a film for commercialization purposes – this independent film was mind blowing!
It’s definitely a movie for mature individuals – there are a lot of sexual scenes that are more provocative than Tom Ford’s uncensored advertisement campaigns. Some scenes even shocked me… and I’ve seen almost everything and I don’t get shocked that easily so you can only imagine. But, beyond the amazing homo-eroticism and insane sex scenes (some which are really unexpected), there lies a true story about love, life and betrayal.
