My Christmas evening (although it's not really my Christmas but we celebrated nonetheless) was spent watching the delightfully moving 'Grey Gardens' starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. It began as a pretty movie who's 1930's style looked enticing and inspiring. You soon, however, discover that beneath the glossy costumes there is a real story. There was an original documentary about the characters, both named Edith Bouvier Beale. It is a story of glamour and how difficult and ultimately worthless it is. Also a story of the complicated relationships between mother daughter shot in two different places in time to show the two very different perspectives the characters hold.
