Drew Barrymore as "Little Edie" (GREY GARDENS)

I really hope this movie is good.
Like --I don't know how I feel about them taking an amazing documentary and turning it into a Hollywood movie with Drew Barrymore, but we'll see. Maybe having a lisp will add depth to Edie's character, who knows. Thats Drew as "Little Edie" on set this week in Toronto. Below are the original Beales.

If you're not familiar with Grey Gardens, here's the sypnosis:
Based on the life stories of the eccentric aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy (both named Edith Bouvier Beale aka "Big and Little Edie") raised as Park Avenue d├ębutantes but who withdrew from New York society, taking shelter at their Long Island summer home, "Grey Gardens." As their wealth and contact with the outside world dwindled, so did their grasp on reality. They were reintroduced to the world when international tabloids learned of a health department raid on their home, and Jackie swooped in to save her relatives.
