While I’m a little wary of Drew Barrymore doing an affected east coast accent, I have to admit I’m pretty excited for HBO’s new Grey Gardens movie.  If you’ve ever seen the original documentary (poster above) then you know how fascinating Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric hermit cousin of Jackie O, truly was.

This film mainly focuses on the life of Edie before the documentary that catapulted her and her mother to cult status.  Can’t wait.

It premieres Saturday, April 18.  See the trailer below.
