The Maysles brothers' classic documentary proved that truth can be stranger than fiction, but this drama adapts the story of Big Edie and her daughter, Little Edie, with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore as the Bouvier women. These fascinating relatives of Jackie O. lived in squalor in a massive mansion on New York's Long Island.
