Tea for Two

About two weeks ago, I watched Grey Gardens , the HBO movie, not the documentary. I really liked it. It's based on the 1975 documentary film by Albert and David Maysles, and it follows the everyday lives of the two Edith Beales. The Beals were a reclusive socialite mother and daughter who lived at Grey Gardens, an old run down mansion in East Hampton, New York. The Beals were relatives of Jackie O and once were extremely rich, but due to some of their choices, they ended up with nothing, but themselves. I thought it was an amazing story, those two are definitely characters! They is so crazy. It was sad and if you know me you know why I liked it; it goes hand and hand with my obsession of A&E's Hoarders. I really want to watch the documentary now!
