~ Grey Gardens ~ Based on the life stories of the eccentric aunt and first cousin of Jackie Onassis (both named Edith Bouvier Beale aka "Big and Little Edie") raised as Park Avenue débutantes but who withdrew from New York society, taking shelter at their Long Island summer home, "Grey Gardens." As their wealth and contact with the outside world dwindled, so did their grasp on reality.
I can’t really tell you if I’m pretty or what kind of girl I am but … I have long hair, blonde, getting darker, deep blue eyes, a pug nose, and a rather decided mouth. I am by no means fat, but I have a good body and big feet." - Excerpt from Little Edie’s diary, 1929.
