secluded socialite mother/daughter pair the edie beales are captured in hbo’s remake of grey gardens. the 1975 documentary by albert + david maysles featured their kooky lifestyle in their derelict hamptons mansion. the film catapulted the pair to instant fashion icons.
the film has been remade starring drew barrymore (looking stunning in a piece that could very well be our dear andeline, non?) and jessica lange. early reviews are solid, but lainey’s advice is to watch the original first. it’s playing immediately after the remake, so set your pvr and listen to lainey.
saturday, 8pm, hbo.
ps / honestly can’t believe drew is back with mac geek. why, why, why go back for more? shudder.
