Grey Gardens (1975)
Director: Ellen Hovde, Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Muffie Meyer
94 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

“Big” and “Little” Edith Bouvier Beale are mother and daughter, high-society drop outs, and reclusive relatives of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. In their decaying and disorderly 28-room mansion in East Hampton, New York, the mother-daughter duo thrive in their eerily dilapidated echo of a wealthy overgrowth. Without the financial means for upkeep, they face the threat of eviction by the town council for their disregard and disconcert of standard maintenance; resorting to financial assistance from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis herself. Ultimately becoming a cult classic, Grey Gardens (1975) presents an intimate portrait of a magnificent estate, and the exuberant characters that inhabited it.
