The Beales of Grey Gardens (2006)
Critic Reviews for The Beales of Grey Gardens
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.
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.
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.
Catnip for the Beale cult, the film supplements but nowhere surpasses the funky charm and moldy glamour of the original.
Audience Reviews for The Beales of Grey Gardens
Probably could have left it alone after the first one, but still interesting and worth the watch.
An extra look at the lives of two outrageous individuals, with footage worthy of being in the original piece, but superb as it is in clips.
Never been much of one for once-rich and privileged, now-poor and self- obsessed white folks endlessly rambling over past glories and flirting like school girls. i must have no heart.
