The movie would almost doubtlessly have garnered Oscar nominations for its two stars had it been released theatrically.

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.

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.
