My Grey Gardens

Everytime Drew Barrymore shows up on screen, it's a gamble for me. That's probably because 8 times out of 10, I wish she would just go away (The 2 out of 10? 'Scream' & the first 'Charlie's Angels'). As a fan of Grey Gardens, both the documentary and the stage musical, I was a little skeptical when HBO announced Barrymore to headline as Little Edie in their upcoming television film- just because I didn't think she has the range to the very arching character. I'd like to sat the trailer would lay those skepticism to rest, but it does the exact opposite- I do have more doubts.  Check it out below and see inferior she is compared to the goddess that is Jessica Lange.
