What I know about this movie:
It stars Stephen Dillane (The Hours), Hugh Dancy (Evening), and the great Julianne Moore in what appears to be her juiciest role in years. It's directed by queer filmmker Tom Kalin, who almost co-directed John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch. It looks beautiful.

What IMDb knows about this movie:
"The true story of the beautiful and charismatic Barbara Daly, who married above her class to Brooks Baekeland, heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune. Their only child is a failure in his father's eyes, and as he matures and becomes increasingly close to his lonely mother, the seeds for tragedy are sown."

It opens May 30. Here is the trailer (which, given the profanity, must be international). Draw your own conclusions:
