Trivia

In an interview with the Daily Mail published July 12, 2008, Sam Green protested the film's portrayal of him as bisexual, and denied that Barbara and Tony Baekeland's relationship was incestuous. He commenced legal action against the filmmakers, which was still unresolved at the time of his death in 2011. As a member of Andy Warhol's circle, he is also portrayed in the film Factory Girl (2006). See more »

Goofs

Quotes

[first lines]
Antony Baekeland: I was eating a tomato at tea time a few weeks ago, and I suddenly realized that mommy is not dead at all. Just very, very mysterious.

Truly cringe worthy
18 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

A movie so disturbing that it can only be based on a true story. And, if you go into the movie not realizing it is a true story (like I did) you will get the shock of your life when you reach the final credits!

This movie rockets through an incredible number of heavy issues at a breath taking pace, while treating the audience with respect by not making all issues blatantly obvious and forcing the audience to put some of the puzzle together.

It explores a dangerously codependent relationship between mother and son. Their relationship is truly cringe worthy and disturbingly fascinating. No yawn moments here.
