Tom Kalin, Savage Grace

Too many years after his critically acclaimed debut Swoon, a black-and-white consideration of the notorious Loeb-Leopold murder case that became a landmark of New Queer Cinema, director Tom Kalin reemerges with Savage Grace, starring Julianne Moore. Another sad, disturbing story of violence among the privileged, along with social climbing, drug abuse, infidelity and incest, Savage Grace co-stars Eddie Redmayne, Stephen Dillane and Hugh Dancy (who appeared in an earlier episode of Beyond the Subtitles). Kalin explains why he wanted to tell Barbara Baekeland's story, what he's been doing since 1992 and Swoon, and why he expects laughs during his film's most shocking moments.
