First there was the 1975 documentary, then the 2006 Broadway adaptation, and now there will be a HBO film adaptation of Grey Gardens.
Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore star as the Edies and Jeanne Tripplehorn stars as Jacqueline Kennedy in the HBO adapatation which premieres April 18. Here is the trailer:
Based on the trailer it seems that Drew Barrymore has captured Edie and finally delivers a worthwhile performance. That’s a huge compliment coming from me considering how much I despise Barrymore. Check out this clip from the documentary and judge for yourself.
