East Hampton, the mid-1970's: documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles set up camp in a decrepit mansion known as Grey Gardens, where the eccentric Edith "Big Edie" Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale live amid piles of trash and mounds of cats. The film becomes an instant cult classic. Fast forward to the present day: "Grey Gardens" has inspired a successful Broadway musical, an HBO film, and Albert, the surviving Maysles brother, has assembled the outtakes from their archives into this supplement to the original film.

This is the sequel to the Grey Gardens movie, we borrowed it at the same time as the prequel but did not bother watching it after a tiresome few minutes with the prequel which was irritating
to say the least.....

If you've seen part one of the documentary then you'll want to see this as well. More footage of Big & Little Edie. Fascinating!

One of the most captivating documentaries I've seen.
