Grey Gardens


Grey Gardens

If a real life tale of two wildly eccentric personalities inhabiting seemingly incomprehensible living conditions is a compelling plotline, then the 1976 American documentary ‘Grey Gardens’ is a film for you. The story chronicles a mother daughter duo, both named Edith Beale, two formerly upper-class women – and relatives of Jackie Kennedy Onassis – whose reclusive tendencies have forced them into poverty-like conditions at their decrepit estate located in the wealthy Georgica Pond neighborhood of East Hampton, New York.

Perhaps it’s their unconventional comedic banter, engaging personalities, individualistic style, or little Edie’s iconic American Flag Dance for the 4th of July sequence, but this film is an absolute ‘Must See’, time and time again.
