First Look At HBO’s “Grey Gardens” Movie
I’m majorly conflicted about the fact that Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are starring in an upcoming movie based on the documentary “Grey Gardens,” and remain conflicted after watching this first look clip above. Can the two actresses pull off Big and Little Edie Beale, the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy? Lange, who has certainly proved her acting chops, is less of a concern than Barrymore, in my opinion, not to mention not knowing if the script is any good. The film supposedly goes back years before the documentary and tells the story off how the Beale’s went from being prominent socialites to reclusive hermits living in a rundown estate in Long Island. The film hits HBO in April of 2009.
