Best of the Fests: Tribeca 2008

The 2008 Tribeca Film Festival began today, and while high profile studio movies have been chosen to open (Baby Mama) and close (Speed Racer) the festivities, we're most anxious to hear the reactions to Savage Grace, director Tom Kalin's first feature since that classic of "New Queer Cinema", Swoon.

Described as a "twisted true-life" story, Julianne Moore stars as Barbara Daly Baekeland, who married into wealth and had a son, Antony Baekeland, with whom she had a most unusual relationship involving sex and knives. Needless to say, it all did not end well, and was quite a scandal at the time.

The drama (watch the trailer here), which also stars Eddie Redmayne and Stephen Dillane, will have its premiere April 26 at the festival, which continues through May 4.
