I simply do not know where to start, you just must see this film. I think i am going on my 6th viewing! It is so fascinating the sets, clothes and performances are to die for, you will love it! I am so inspired by the lifestyle shift that they had over the years. Its brilliant when the older woman (Big Edie) is surprised when her niece Jackie O drops in on their mess of a house. She immediately shifts her to the garden and says "are these chairs dirty?" and little Edie puts down paper for them to sit on.No sooner is Big Edie ordering Pâté for her distinguished guest. My big takeaway moment here is that even while they lived in filth, these women remained fabulous hostesses in their own little ways. So as we live our lives hopefully without tin cans stacked to the ceiling, we can remember to offer guests s little something to eat or drink, and give them a lovely clean place to sit.
