grey gardens

While you really should be at the s.a.d.a. Fashion Show on Saturday night[8pm, Lansing Center, $12!] , there is still a way to have a stylish evening if you can't make it to the event. "Grey Gardens" is premiering on HBO that night. The movie, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange, is based on a documentary from 1975 about Edith "Big Edie" Beale, and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Beale, who were the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. The documentary focused on the point in their lives when they lived in squalor and isolation at their East Hampton mansion, but the HBO movie shows more of their lives, and how their lifestyle came to be. It also spawned a Tony nominated musical of the same name, but that production has since closed. I would really like to see this documentary, next time I'm home, I'll have to see if the video store has it to rent, otherwise I may have to join Netflix. "Grey Gardens" premieres on HBO, Saturday April 18th, 8pm.
