Rating: 2/5 -- Catnip for the Beale cult, the film supplements but nowhere surpasses the funky charm and moldy glamour of the original.

Deserves a thoughtful look-and a lively argument. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- A bit like wandering into a slice of life that suddenly turns into a Tennessee Williams play, with upper-class Eastern accents replacing the Southern ones.

Rating: B+ -- It lacks the first movie's cohesiveness, but Grey Gardens was never a model of structure; it was more a reality show before its time, and The Beales of Grey Gardens brings us closer to the mysteries at its heart. Full Review

Little Edie models her strange getups, studies an astrology paperback through a magnifying glass, holds forth on the horrors of alcohol and the strength of her Catholic faith, and delivers numerous spontaneous singing performances. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Fans of the first film will want to see this extension, though it stands equally well on its own as a portrait of thwarted, headstrong women trapped in a degraded present and borne back ceaselessly into the past. Full Review

Product Description:

Influential filmmakers Albert and David Maysles scored a cult phenomenon with their 1975 documentary GREY GARDENS, a quirky character study of the eccentric mother and daughter duo (and Jackie Kennedy relatives) Big and Little Edie Bouvier Beale. This 2005 sequel finds the Maysles revisiting their famous film and subjects with a collection of never-before-seen footage that didn't make it into the original.
