Drew Barrymore, Jessica Lange
Directed by Michael Sucsy
In 1976, the Maysles released a shocking doc about Edith Beale and her daughter, Little Edie. Relatives of Jackie O, these aristocrats lived in poverty in a vermin-infested mansion in East Hampton, New York. On April 18th, HBO debuts its electrifying take on that story. The script hits a few bumps, but Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore are magnificent as the bizarro Beales. Barrymore is a revelation. Aging into her 60s and transformed in voice and bearing, she finds Edie's unquenchable spirit. Brava.
