Tripplehorn plays Jacqueline “Jackie” Bouvier Kennedy Onassis in this HBO drama written and directed by Michael Sucsy. After learning of the squalor in which her aunt, Big Edie Beale, and cousin, Little Edie Beale, are living, Jackie comes to their home and pays for the needed renovations. Co-starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore.
I thought that by being in this project I would have some questions answered about exactly what was going on psychologically with Little Edie, which just goes to show that these relationships are endlessly fascinating and will continue to be interpreted and reinterpreted. I don’t see an end in sight.
