The fascinating eccentricities of the Beales—widow "Big Edie" and "Little Edie," her flamboyant daughter—are forever preserved in this bittersweet cinéma vérité classic, newly restored by the Criterion Collection and the Academy Film Archive and screening in a brand-new DCP. Cousins of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Beales share a crumbling, 28-room manor not far from the East Hampton shore. In their self-imposed exile, they have created a microenvironment steeped in memories of long-faded glamour: former model “Little Edie” and her mother were once belles of the Manhattan social set. The inspiration for the HBO film starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange.
