What’s better than a Dame Helen Mirren-hosted pseudo-documentary classic as interpreted by some of the funniest comedians and performers out there — including the lovable Fred Armisen & Bill Hader? When they’re paired double-feature style on the big screen with the films that inspired the episodes!
An in depth look at the daily lives of two aging socialites and their crumbling estate.

Starring: Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Helen Mirren
Edie Bouvier Beale and her mother, Edith, two aging, eccentric relatives of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, are the sole inhabitants of a Long Island estate.
