Have you seen Grey Gardens? I don’t think I’ve seen anything more lovely and terrifying in all my life. Lovely for the set and wardrobe:
And horrifying for the story line. Can you imagine squandering your dreams to live in a rundown mansion with your mother? The movie exudes loneliness, pride, the depression of feminism and the complexity of mother/daughter love. And its stars, Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange as the Bouvier Beales (aunt and cousin to Jackie O), portray these eccentric women flawlessly. It’s a must see.
