That Summer is a documentary made of material shot by photographer Peter Beard in the summer of 1972 at the Grey Gardens estate in Long Island. After all these years, director Göran Olsson has edited Beard’s material into a 82 minutes long movie: That Summer. We guess it must be a celeb gazing flick; starring, Peter Beard, Andy Warhol, Lee Radziwill, Mick Jagger, Truman Capote and of course Big and Litlle Edie Beale.
Welcome to Grey Gardens…as you’ve never seen it before.
This is the Official trailer for the documentary ‘Grey Gardens’ made by Albert and David Maysles in 1975. In this film two, formery rich, New York socialites are portrayed in their home, which is the Grey Gardens estate in the Hamptons. Mother and daughter Edith Beale (big and little Edie) ran out of money at a point, the house became sort of derilict but the Edie’s stayed and lived a reclusive but extravagant life in that house for 50 years or so.
