For their classic, 1976 documentary Grey Gardens, Albert and David Maysles shot hours-upon-hours of footage exploring the lives of their subjects Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie (who were affectionately referred to by their brothers as Big Edie and Little Edie), whose quiet lives on the grounds of a dilapidated estate stood in remarkable contrast to their quick with and extravagant upbringing. Though the brothers were unable to use a vast majority of the fascinating footage in the ninety-four minute film, this companion piece comprised of never-before-seen outtakes culled from the original shooting sessions allows Grey Gardens fans to take a trip back to that familiar, dilapidated mansion to hear both Big Edie and Little Edie discuss everything from love and war to the existence of God. A nostalgic montage of Little Edie offers a warm testament to the eccentric daughter's inimitable fashion sense. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
