Factory Girl is a 2006 film about the 1960's independent film actress, socialite, and Andy Warhol's plaything, Edie Sedgwick (Sienna Miller). Edie is a wealthy girl and heiress to a great fortune. After studying art in Cambridge, MA she moves to New York City where she is quickly introduced to the pop art scene of the time. Upon meeting the famous Andy Warhol (Guy Pierce) she becomes intertwined into his factory life and all the eccentrics and addicts that surround him and his genius. Andy becomes obsessed with her untamed beauty and starts to cast her as the leading lady in his underground film projects. One of these eccentrics she meets is a singer and poet, Billy Quinn (Hayden Christensen). Billy is a creation by the film as an interpretation of Bob Dylan. She instantly falls in love with the man, but tries to keep a jealous Warhol at bay. Her struggle between the two men drives her to serious drug addiction and in the end leaves her alone and in rehab. Years later she is recovering from her intense, artistic, and some what tragic life of fame and glamour.moreless
