HBO means great cinema.

Had Grey Gardens been released theatrically, it would have garnered Oscar nominations for both its stars. Drew Barrymore is at the top of her game as" Little" Edie, and Jessica Lange is phenomenal as her mother, "Big" Edie. A little sex, not very foul language, but lots of drinking and smoking. Kids may need a little historical context before, or after watching it.
