The 1976 cinema vérité classic Grey Gardens, which captured in remarkable close-up the lives of the eccentric East Hampton recluses Big and Little Edie Beale, has inspired everything from a midnight-movie cult following to a Broadway musical to a Hollywood adaptation. The filmmakes then went back to their vaults of footage to create part two, The Beales of Grey Gardens, a tribute both to these indomitable women and to the original landmark documentary's legions of fans, who have made them American counterculture icons. -- back cover.

This is the sequel to the Grey Gardens movie, we borrowed it at the same time as the prequel but did not bother watching it after a tiresome few minutes with the prequel which was irritating
to say the least.....

If you've seen part one of the documentary then you'll want to see this as well. More footage of Big & Little Edie. Fascinating!
