- Synopsis / Plot
- The year is 1965, and Edie Sedgwick is living every young girl’s dream. Rich, ambitious and breathtakingly beautiful, Edie’s life changes forever when she meets Andy Warhol, New York’s most famous artist, and the man who will transform this trust fund baby into the Big Apple’s most dazzling Superstar. At the center of this exciting and decadent new world is The Factory, Warhol’s downtown loft, a place where musicians, artists, actors and all types of misfits gather to create art and movies during the day, and to throw fabulous parties at night. It is here that Edie takes her place at Andy’s side as the Factory’s most alluring and irresistible Superstar.
Edie has the world at her feet. Every woman wants to be her. Every man wants to be with her. But unable to find the love she craves from Andy and The Factory Edie turns to the “voice of a generation” singer-songwriter Danny Quinn, a captivating and talented musician who represents everything that Andy is not - where Andy is all cool surfaces, Danny burns with the fire of his convictions. Danny pushes Edie to free herself from Andy, who has been using her in his movies but never paying her. Edie quickly falls for Danny, but every affair has its price…
Warhol is deeply stung by the revelation of Edie’s affair, and punishes her for her unfaithfulness by banishing her from the Factory. As her world collapses, Danny abandons her too. All alone, Edie struggles to hold herself together as the pressures of fame and the cost of the fast life turn her world from glamour to tragedy. A fragile shooting star who dazzled the world with her beauty, style, glamour and wealth, Edie Sedgwick was one of the great pop icons of the 1960’s. This is her story.
