The movie version of the infamous documentary “Grey Gardens” airs on HBO on April 18 — so soon! — and we finally have two trailers to tease you. When we initially heard about the movie, starring Drew Barrymore as Little Edie and Jessica Lange as Big Edie, we were a little worried: Would they do justice to the documentary, which has inspired everyone from Marc Jacobs to Rufus Wainwright? Amelia was especially concerned about Barrymore’s abilities.
I, for one, will be trekking to a friend who has HBO’s apartment next month. The movie goes back 40 years before the documentary was filmed, delving into why the mother and daughter withdrew from society. And, Drew’s accent doesn’t sound half bad! After the jump, the second trailer, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie, and a clip from the original documentary for you to compare.
