In 1973, documentary filmmaking brothers Albert Maysles and David Maysles decide to change the focus of their latest project from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to her aunt and older cousin, mother and daughter Edith Bouvier Beale - called Big Edie - and Edith 'Little Edie' Bouvier Beale, who were found living in squalor and isolation in the longtime family mansion, Grey Gardens, in East Hampton, New York. Through flashbacks starting in 1936, the path mother and daughter take from their socialite past to the time that the Mayles brothers show their completed film is shown. Big Edie's husband/Little Edie's father, Phelan Beale, controlled the family money, which included providing singing lessons to Big Edie with musician Gould Strong, with who she had more than a musical interest. Big Edie saw herself as a singer, first and foremost.

This movie drags you in from the very beginning! Drew and Jessica betray Big and Little Edie so well they are surely to get many accolades for this film. I first heard of them when the Broadway play was made about them. Since then I have done some research on them and the story hit the nail on the head. The family members of Jackie O were very colorful and very mental as we see how they let their home go to the raccoons!1000 bags of trash were taken from the home and as a tree removed that had grown inside their home! When the film begins you feel as if you have no sympathy or apathy for these women,but yet they draw you in!A must see for movie fans of Drew and Jessica! Drew must do more films like these, She's a Natural!
