Grey Gardens

Critics Consensus

Edith and Edie Beale are eccentric subjects who offer a generous amount of themselves in Grey Gardens, an inquisitive and nonjudgmental exploration of the isolated socialites' lifestyle.

Movie Info

This film explores the daily lives of two aging, eccentric relatives of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Edie Bouvier Beale and her mother, Edith, are the sole inhabitants of a Long Island estate. During the course of the documentary, they discuss their habits, desires and former loves with filmmakers Albert and David Maysles. The women reveal themselves to be misfits with outsized, engaging personalities. Much of the conversation is centered on their pasts, as mother and daughter now rarely leave home.

Audience Reviews for Grey Gardens

  • Mar 05, 2017
    This precursor of modern reality television is cinéma vérité at its best, not just observing or "invading" its subjects' privacy but actually baring naked the insane relationship between these two hilariously eccentric women living together in a decrepit mansion falling apart.

    The two Beales are such sad and eccentric figures that even without much of a plot or a serious examination into their lives the film stays engaging. Seriously, I don't think there have ever been two other people quite like them . . . in fiction or real life.

    I was dying to watch this docu after I watched Drew Barrymore's Grey Gardens last week and this movie is really worth all the effort that I have put to watch it.

    Too eccentric for my taste.
