Reviews for Grey Gardens come in
Although it doesnt premiere until Saturday on HBO. Some reviews have trickled in for Grey Gardens. Here's what I could find:
"Grey Gardens is a must-see for those fascinated by the lore of the U.S.' modern Camelot, as well as another sure to be lavishly adorned movie for HBO."
"Barrymore and Lange deliver vibrant, wonderfully theatrical turns, with Barrymore in particular seeming delighted to sink her teeth into a character this meaty after a blur of relatively forgettable romantic comedies."
"Jessica Lange is brilliant. She plays deluded forcefully, ages credibly and brings pathos to sometimes pathetic behavior."
"It seems destiny that Jessica Lange will be rewarded with every possible accolade for television films, coming awards season."
"Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore turn in the best performances of their careers!"
"As true to the documentary as it could be, with allowing us a glimpse into the Beale's younger lives, Grey Gardens is a four star production."
WALL STREET JOURNAL
"The HBO film "Grey Gardens" shines new light on old subjects, and the result -- including a fantastic performance from Drew Barrymore -- is beyond entertaining."
"Jessica Lange also brings Big Edie into focus more sharply than the documentary did. She is a revelation."
SO exciting! AND .. I GET TO SEE IT TONIGHT!
