Last night, as the rain pattered on the leaves, I watched the 2009 HBO movie Grey Gardens. Staring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange, this movie is about a mother and daughter each named Edie Beale. Big Edie and Little Edie. The aunt and cousin of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. They lived for many years in Grey Gardens, a mansion in East Hampton, New York, much of that time in dire poverty.
In 1975 two brothers, Albert and David Maysles, made a documentary film about the Beales. A musical was also made from the documentary film. The film and the documentary are available on NetFlix. Astonishing story.
