From the filmmakers behind Salesman (1969) and The Rolling Stones` Gimme Shelter (1970), the Maysles Brothers present another of their `non-fiction features`, this time an impossibly intimate, absorbing insight into the lives of two eccentric and reclusive women: Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie. As aunt and cousin Jackie Onassis, `Big Edie` and `Little Edie` lived together as high-society dropouts in a squalid mansion in wealthy East Hampton. What was once a grand summer residence has been reduced to a fortress of fleas, feral cats, and filth, the gardens long gone to seed and Big Edie and Little Edie confined to just a few of the twenty-eight rooms.

Together they invent a world with their house as a stage where life`s disappointments and pleasures are recycled into riveting performances, performances which have gone on to earn Little Edie`s reputation as a fashion genius and philosopher queen.

This true cult classic - which has inspired a current Broadway show, a centre page fashion spread in both Vogue and Harper`s Bazaar, and a Hollywood "remake" - prompted the intervention of Jackie O, to save the couple from a hazardous health eviction order and any further "embarrassment" for the family.
