If you have yet to meet Big Edie and Little Edie, you’re in for some serious fashion enjoyment. Using the documentary made by the Maysles brothers in 1973 as framework, director-writer Michael Sucsy will bring this cult-favorite pair and their engaging characters to television in the HBO film Grey Gardens, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. With Little Edie’s eccentric fashion technique complete with her characterizing head wraps and the pairs unwillingness to give up being socialites, expect to see upcoming fashions inspired by their fabulous style, re-created in the film by costume designer Catherine Thomas. You still have a couple weeks to rent the documentary before the HBO film debuts Saturday, April 18.
