Synopsis by Violet LeVoit
Filmed by David Maysles and Albert Maysles, this is the story of two eccentric women who just happen to be related to Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Filmed in a 79-year-old decrepit mansion on Long Island, this documentary shows Edith Bouvier Beale, her aunt, and Edith's 56-year-old daughter, Edie. Documenting the futility and bitterness of two old women living in their own dreams of lost love, this is more a character study than an indictment of these unusual women.
