Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 07/27/2002
"...These sad, bickering, mutually dependent women are like two Tennessee Williams heroines, acting out a real-life drama....It's almost impossible to look away..."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2007
"[E]xtraordinary....[The Beales] turn out to be natural performers who are thrilled to have finally found an audience."

Product Description:

Out in East Hampton, behind a cloud of overgrown foliage and weeds, there is a large decaying mansion which is home to Edith Bouvier Beale and her grown-up daughter Little Edie. Big and Little Edie are the aunt and first cousin of Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis, and this documentary is a portrait of their unusual life together. When Little Edie left New York, she left behind her dreams of stardom to take care of her aging mother, and together they developed a unique relationship, cloistered away in their fading glory. A stirring portrait by the pioneers of documentary filmmaking, the Maysles Brothers.

Product Description:

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: high-society dropouts, mother and daughter, reclusive cousins of Jackie O., thriving together amid the decay and disorder of their ramshackle East Hampton mansion. An impossibly intimate portrait and an eerie echo of the Kennedy Camelot, Albert and David Maysles' 1976 Grey Gardens quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. Thirty years later, the filmmakers revisited their landmark documentary with a sequel of sorts, The Beales of Grey Gardens, culled from hours of never-before-seen footage recently found in the filmmakers' vaults.
