"As she daydreams, she pictures the two of them in a scene straight out of the cult film "Grey Gardens..."

Exactly. It's a cult film, a documentary actually. This will be cute for the people who're into GG but a big scoop of WTF for everyone else. It'll be interesting to see the reaction.

I think people who know nothing about "Grey Gardens" will still get the point of the scenes: that the two of them will become isolated, odd, and alone as they grow older together.

Oh yeah, they'll get the spinster angle. I guess it'll depend on how much of a GG send up (or rip off) it is. Costumes, sets, background music, etc... Judging from the pics they're going for a real Grey Gardens feel. That's what I think will go over some people's heads. I wouldn't be surprised if it breaks down along generational lines.

Yeah, I can see a "WTF" if they really go <i>too</i> far with it, lol.

Should be at least......ummm..... "interesting" to see, no matter how it turns out.

So this is based on the Drew Barrymore movie that go all the Emmy noms?

I think this will go right over most peeps heads. It sure went over mine.

Well I guess I got my answer.. heehe that was fun, did not quite do them justice but nobody can. By the looks of this sad little thread, yes it is still very much a cult film and I think I like it that way.
