No one who loves Grey Gardens can do without this.
Director: Göran Olsson
Cast includes: Little Edie and Big Edie, Andy Warhol
82 Mins / 2018 / Sweden | Denmark | USA
This sensational film presents a backstory-prequel to the making of the documentary Grey Gardens that spot-lit Big and Little Edie, two great American eccentrics. The women are still extraordinary, speaking lines no screenwriter would dare invent: lines that are funny, petulant, crazy, and melancholy.
Lost for decades, this extraordinary footage re-emerges in Olsson’s documentary, which focuses on Peter Beard and his family of friends, who formed a vibrant and profoundly influential creative community in Montauk in the 1970s. Featuring Peter Beard, Lee Radziwill, Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale, Edith Bouvier Beale (Little Edie and Big Edie) and Andy Warhol. No one who loves Grey Gardens can do without this.
