That Summer (PG)


Documentary about a mother and daughter, former socialites, who live a reclusive life in a ramshackle Hamptons house in the 1960s.

The critical consensus

Göran Olsson presents a companion piece to the classic Grey Gardens, using unearthed footage of the legendary Beales.

***(*)(*)Angie Errigo, The List, 28/05/2018

‘I never thought of the Beales as unfortunate or sad,’ Beard reflects in the contemporary voiceover that runs through the film. That’s the paradox which makes them such wonderfully compelling screen figures.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 30/05/2018

This sensational film presents a backstory-prequel to the making of the documentary that spotlit Big and Little Edie, two great American eccentrics.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 30/05/2018

Captures the dreamy warmth of summer love.

Sophie Monks Kaufman, The Independent, 31/05/2018

An impressionistic study of a moment in time in which the promise of the previous decade was being unceremoniously eroded.
