grey gardens - drew barrymore amazed

drew barrymore is absolutely, completely incredible in grey gardens (which i watched with my mom this weekend) - she stole the show. she is brilliant. i have always loved her but this just raised my respect for her to the tip top.

here are some stills from the film (isn't she ravishing!) - the costumes were breathtaking.


here is the trailer.



bravo to drew barrymore and the team that put this together. having seen the real grey gardens documentary...they were dead on.

  1. I was told right after filming of the HBO film wrapped up in the fall of 2007, that I would be blown away at the last scene, where Edie sings Tea For Two at Reno Sweeny, and I was ! I had supplied the film company with the only recording in existence of Edie singing the tune, only this wasn't from her actual performance at the club, but rather her singing it just for me at one of my many visits to Grey Gardens. Drew sang it exactly, phrase for phrase as I have it on tape. Edie and I actually met that night at Reno Sweeny, and my relationship with Grey Gardens has now spanned over 3 decades.
