inspired casting! Drew Barrymore proves herself worthy of ghterher famous name. Having gone for elocution lessons so that she didn't talk out the side of her mouth as she normally does, placed herself in isolation so that she could feel what 'little' Edie Beale felt- Drew becomes a force of Method acting. The film is not simply a copy of the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens. The film makers took 'clues' from the conversations/arguments between Mother and Daughter, followed those up with investigations and added the detail into the film in the form of flashbacks, as it were. The direction, photography is spot on. Very theatrical in the sense that it is a limited cast in one or two locations, as well as intensity-the film is a gem both historically and in film making itself.
