Tu 7p; W 3:20p, 7p: Grey Gardens
Directed by Albert & David Maysles, 1975, 94 min
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, Grey Gardens quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.
Tu 9:10p; W 1:30p, 5:05p, 9:10p: The Beales of Grey Gardens
Directed by Albert & David Maysles, 2006, 90 min
A love letter to the fans of the original film and to the two women at its heart, this film is drawn entirely from never- before-seen material from the Maysles’ archive. Edited from hours and hours of footage, THE BEALES captures ‘Big’ Edie and ‘Little’ Edie at their resplendent, dazzling and exasperating best—philosophizing on God, love and war amidst the disorder of their ramshackle East Hampton mansion, with a montage tribute to Little Edie’s inimitable style and show-stopping outfits.
