Synopsis

Drawn entirely from never-before-seen material from the Maysles archive. Edited from hours and hours of footage shot between 1973 and 1976, 'Big' Edie and 'Little' Edie are captured at their resplendent, dazzling and exasperating best--philosophizing on God, love and war amidst the disorder of their ramshackle East Hampton mansion, with a montage tribute to Little Edie's inimitable style as she models a succession of her showstopping outfits. In its unforgettable detail, this intimate and transfixing portrait of the Beales, now iconic figures since the release of Grey Gardens some thirty years ago, brings us ever closer to the baroque mystery of their lives together.
