Grey Gardens

The Maysles brothers' classic, observational documentary on mother and daughter Beale - the reclusive cousins of Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, high-society dropouts, and tenants of a faded and decaying Hampton mansion. A cult hit famed for its intimate portrayal of 'Little' Edith Bouvier Beale - and her rambling on fashion and philosophy - and 'Big' Edie, her demanding 79-year-old mum.

A film that is voyeuristic in the extreme, extending no warmth to the bizarre mother and daughter as they battle out their lives together, but choosing instead to film them in the most offensive of ways.
