Grey Gardens (Maysles Brothers, USA, 1975)

The beauty of this film is the dignity it imparts to the Beales, trapped in their pasts. They failed to launch, yet paradoxically, they continue to fly so high.
— Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

Mrs Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, are two of the greatest characters to ever appear on film - and they’re real. The Maysles document the pair and their crumbling mansion to create an unforgettable portrait of dependence and eccentricity.
