Moms Weekend: GREY GARDENS

Director: Ellen Hovde, Albert Maysles, David Maysles, and Muffie Meyer
Cast: Edith Bouvier Beale, Edith (Little Edie) Bouvier Beale

Grey Gardens is a fabled home located in the elite seaside Village of East Hampton, Long Island.  Of course, Grey Gardens is also a landmark documentary, a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical and an HBO movie starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. Most importantly, Grey Gardens is a breathtaking and alluring portrait of Edith Beale and her daughter Edie.
In April, the spotlight will shine back on the Edies, when Grey Gardens (the original 1970s documentary, not the Drew Barrymore remake) returns to theaters. America’s favorite high-society dropouts even got a makeover for the occasion—a “striking new 2K restoration [has been] made by the Criterion Collection in collaboration with the Academy Film Archive at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences”. The Athena Cinema will feature a special 2 day run of the cult classic documentary for OHIO Moms Weekend.

If you’ve somehow managed to never catch Albert and David Maysles’s cult classic, this is a good opportunity to take in all of its beautiful weirdness on the big screen. The doc offers a very intimate look into the lives of Edith “Big Edie” Ewing Bouvier Beale and Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale (and cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis), as they live surrounded by the detritus of their past in a decaying East Hampton mansion, Grey Gardens.
