Drew is never less than intoxicating and heartbreaking, as a maximum security gilded cage fantasy screen goddess hermit womanchild, wandering around in minks and creatively accessorized rags. Brother, Can You Spare A Diamond Tiara.

From that David and Goliath setup, filmed in a straightforward style on a shoestring budget, emerge fascinating character studies that underscore both the best and worst of human nature.

You will really appreciate Drew Barrymore's performance more if you have seen the documentary... She really nails it.

Offbeat and bizarre yet extremely touching and entertaining, HBO's telefilm of love and co-dependency, inspired by the Maysles seminal 1973 docu, has narrative problems but is superbly acted by Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange.

The script hits a few bumps, but Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore are magnificent as the bizarro Beales.
