Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot.
An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, co-directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.
Fancy dress is not compulsory, but if you do, there might be a drink in it for you, and we’ll also aim to get you a seat in the bar complete with cats, racoons and American flags.
“The more they squabble, the more one is reminded of Bette and Joan in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? And the resemblance they bear to Divine and Edith “the Egg Lady” Massey in Pink Flamingos, released two years earlier, is so eerie one is almost prepared to credit John Waters with ESP” – John Patterson, The Guardian
