Read Paul Griffiths's film review of Savage Grace

Since this is an indie film, picture and sound are what you would expect (although it's a shame there are no subtitles).

There is just one extra, Savage Grace: Behind The Scenes. Despite running at a trim 16 minutes, this is vastly superior to the average making of. All the main members of the cast and crew are interviewed about the film and all offer some erudite observations about the content of the film and what drew them to the project. There are clips from the film used to illustrate, but they have been chosen well so as not to give away huge chunks of plot. All in all, very worthwhile, although the package as a whole might have benefited from an additional, more factual extra about the Baekeland family itself.
