Aroview: An intimate portrait of acute eccentricity, this offers a ‘home movie’-style insight into the lives of colourful high-society drop-outs Big Edie (79) and her daughter, Little Edie Beale (54), estranged cousins of Jackie Onassis.
Living a secluded, co-dependent life together in a dilapidated East Hampton mansion, their gone-to-seed existence plays like a gothic melodrama with the plot confined to memories and illusions. That there is little ‘drama’ is perhaps part of the point, but this holds chief interest as an endearing freak show, with Little Edie, since rightfully enshrined as a fashion icon of the 1970s, clearly enjoying her belated time in the spotlight.
