Factory Girl Summary
Arriving into the chaos of mid-60s New York, rich, ambitious and breathtakingly beautiful Edie Sedgwick meets counter-culture anti-hero Andy Warhol who sees in her untamed vulnerability the makings of an irresistible muse. Andy invites Edie into the wild world of the Factory, a former downtown hat factory he has transformed into a bohemian, creative paradise. Here, a rag-tag mix of musicians, poets, artists, actors and misfits gather to create art and make underground movies during the day and throw glam parties all night long. Edie quickly ascends to become the star of Warhol's movies, an idol at the Factory and a media darling. She is on top of the world when she falls in love with a larger-than-life rock star. But when Edie becomes caught between Warhol's world of sexy surfaces and her new love, she winds up rejected by both--and once again, set adrift in the modern world.
