Catnip for the Beale cult, the film supplements but nowhere surpasses the funky charm and moldy glamour of the original.

A bit like wandering into a slice of life that suddenly turns into a Tennessee Williams play, with upper-class Eastern accents replacing the Southern ones.

Little Edie models her strange getups, studies an astrology paperback through a magnifying glass, holds forth on the horrors of alcohol and the strength of her Catholic faith, and delivers numerous spontaneous singing performances.

Deserves a thoughtful look-and a lively argument.

Fans of the first film will want to see this extension, though it stands equally well on its own as a portrait of thwarted, headstrong women trapped in a degraded present and borne back ceaselessly into the past.

It lacks the first movie's cohesiveness, but Grey Gardens was never a model of structure; it was more a reality show before its time, and The Beales of Grey Gardens brings us closer to the mysteries at its heart.
