Grey Gardens 1975 Documentary By The Maysles Bros.

Just watched this documentary about a mother and daughter  from the Bouvier family(Jackie Kennedy's Aunt and cousin).It's a bit disturbing,sad,touching,interesting and some what exploitive I felt but the ladies recieved help because of the exposure.

They went from living the Great Gatsby type of lifestlye to living in squalor due to poor choices and mental illness.There is also a HBO movie Grey Gardens with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange that touches on the lives of the women(Big Edie and Little Edie Beale)when they were younger and healthier that I thought was well done and gave insight into what they were like before their gradual decline into poverty.
