A Review of the Documentary "Edith+Eddie"

Laura Checkoway’s Edith+Eddie. A Kartemquin-supported project, Checkoway’s Film introduces us to Edith Hill and Eddie Harrison of Annandale, Virginia, the world’s oldest interracial newlyweds.

At ages 96 and 95, their late-life love affair seems the stuff of fairytales — we witness them going out dancing and attending their weekly church service — but it isn’t long before we learn that Edith’s mental state has left her under the legal care of those who have more interest in her property than her wishes.

Edith+Eddie examines the psychic repercussions of familial estrangement to devastating effect.
