Albert Maysles in Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens

1975 PG

Documentary pioneers the Maysles brothers (Gimme Shelter) capture poignant moments in the lives of Jackie O's quirky relatives -- Edith Bouvier Beale, aka Big Edie, and her middle-aged daughter, Little Edie -- at their decaying estate, Grey Gardens. The ladies shut out their bleak present by recalling richer times and lost loves, and while Little Edie confides that she'd like to leave, the camera captures an enduring co-dependency.
