SANTA MONICA, CA - Detailing the rise and fall of Edie Sedgwick - the blazing mid-sixties superstar, the "It Girl," the muse to eccentric artist Andy Warhol - the unrated director's cut of Factory Girl comes to DVD on July 17 from Genius Products LLC. and The Weinstein Company.

Powerful performances from Sienna Miller (Alfie, Casanova) and Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential), combined with a riveting multi-media collage of actual footage including archival tapes, still photos, and scenes from Warhol's movies, Factory Girl brings to life Sedgwick's ascension to the quintessential icon of American pop culture. Branded by Warhol as a counter-culture heroine when the counter-culture was everything, the film delves into the underground artistic and sensual universe bursting with sex, drugs, style, rock 'n' roll, and the mad rush for fame and fabulousness that was destined to spin out of control. Deeply intimate and sexually revealing, Emmy® Award winning* director George Hickenlooper's Unrated Director's Cut features steamy footage not seen in theaters.

Factory Girl also features performances from Hayden Christensen (Star Wars prequels, Shattered Glass), Jimmy Fallon (Saturday Night Live, Fever Pitch), Shawn Hatosy (Alpha Dog, The Cooler) and Mena Suvari (American Beauty, Beauty Shop). With over 15 minutes of footage not seen in theaters, the unrated director's cut of the DVD features audio commentary, featurettes, a deleted scene, audition tapes and more.

In the 1960s, no star burned brighter than original "It" girl Edie Sedgwick (Miller). Factory Girl follows Edie's meteoric rise from art student to the top of the New York fashion scene. As the muse of pop artist Andy Warhol (Pearce), Edie paid a steep price for fame. An intoxicating journey through pop-culture history, Factory Girl takes us inside Warhol's legendary studio, where the worlds of art, film, fashion and celebrity all collided.
