The beauty of this film is the dignity it imparts to the Beales, trapped in their pasts. They failed to launch, yet paradoxically, they continue to fly so high.

Richly detailed and boundlessly evocative, even at its most claustrophobic.

Rarely have high spirits and theatrical energy seemed like such a tragic waste; an era and its myths seem to be dying on-screen in real time.

Grey Gardens became a cult film in the '70s, when mavericks and outsiders were the heroes and heroines and the Beales were valued for their alternative world and their priceless eccentricity.

The house was beautiful once, and so were the Beales... Grey Gardens, one of the most haunting documentaries in a long time, preserves their strange existence, and we're pleased that it does.
