Finally out on DVD,
This review is from: Grey Gardens [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
Every year I check for a region 2 DVD of this film, so I'm thrilled it's finally here. You simply have to see this. It's useless me telling how special it just is, you have to see it for yourself.
The film's about an aunt and a niece of Jackie O. The former Mrs. Kennedy and the most glamorous first lady the US has ever had. They used to live a live of luxury and privilege themselves. When the filmcrew meets them they're living in the delapidated estate house Grey Gardens. And as you will see in the film, they have a world view of their own. But strangely enough, living there in a flea infested house, no one to keep them company but the cats, they are happy. In their own little world that is Grey Gardens, they seem perfectly content.
So, more than just a strange documentary, this is a beautiful, loving story of a girl (the daughter never really grew up) and her old mother, spending their days together... but that would be rather boring of course. Big Edie and Little Edie, as they're known, are also good for more than just one laugh!
