Scum Club Presents: Grey Gardens
ABOUT SCUM CLUB

Loosely named after the SCUM Manifesto (1968) by the radical feminist Valerie Solanas, S.C.U.M. Club aims to highlight films that showcase various aspects of the female experience for better or worse. Women historically have been marginalized or relegated to films where their sole purpose is to be a love interest of a male and SCUMClub hopes to break the mold showing diverse films that pass the Bechdel Test.

ABOUT THE FILM

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.

"Richly detailed and boundlessly evocative, even at its most claustrophobic." Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

"Rarely have high spirits and theatrical energy seemed like such a tragic waste; an era and its myths seem to be dying on-screen in real time." Richard Brody

"The beauty of this film is the dignity it imparts to the Beales, trapped in their pasts. They failed to launch, yet paradoxically, they continue to fly so high." Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
