Staunch  women – an old mother and her middle-aged daughter, the aunt and cousin of Jacqueline  Kennedy, live their eccentric lives in a filthy, decaying mansion in East Hampton.

Meet  Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles (Gimme Shelter), co-directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. Enter Grey Gardens and be prepared to never want to leave. (USA, 1975, 100 min., NR, English| Dir. Albert & Robert Maysles)
