The two Edies have lived in almost complete seclusion since the mid-1950s, ever since Big Edie's husband abandoned her and Little Edie (then a young socialite on the verge of a dancing career, or so she claims) was called home to care for her depressed mother. Twenty years later they continue to live in their memories while camped out in a single bedroom of the 28-room mansion overrun with cats (who use the floor as their litter box). Rehashing mistakes and missed chances with an accusing banter that becomes more stinging and angry as the documentary progresses, they exist in a sad codependency brings new meaning to the term dysfunctional. Disturbing and discomforting, it comes off like a freak show at times, but for all their arguments and recriminations, the Maysles reveal two women abandoned by their families who are left to cling to each other, for better or worse. --Sean Axmaker

Insufferably long and depressing glimpse at mental illness. The main reason this documentary has such a following is the Kennedy connection. Read morePublished 4 days ago by texasbooks

No, she didn't have cancer. She lost her hair and eyebrows when she was younger.

I agree that there is an eerie addiction to this particular story. Ever since I watched it, I can't forget it, and the Beales (especially Edie) are always in my mind now. Weird, but I rather like it.

I dont know where but I think its fabulous too. I was surprised to find out that it was costume jewelry since she prized that piece so much.

|Grey Gardens the musical||
Yes! I just saw it on Friday night. I'm absolutely in love with it. The music is beautiful, and Christine Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson are absolute geniuses.
