Grey Gardens

An old mother and her middle-aged daughter, the aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, live their eccentric lives in a filthy, decaying mansion in East Hampton.
I have been absolutely fascinated by the story of Edith Beale and Little Edie after watching Grey Gardens. It's a really great documentary. I had to go look up as much as I could about them and I'm still curious too see what Grey Gardens looks like now. HBO released a movie version this year starring Jessica Lang and Drew Barrymore. Their performances are so so so good!! I highly recommend watching both films!
