Factory Girl

Finally, -) I have been waiting for this film to be released for months!

NOVA Cinema, Melbourne has an exclusive release of  FACTORY GIRL screening from June 21.

Sienna Miller plays the legendary Edie Sedgwick, the ‘poor little rich girl’ born to American aristocracy and the cinematic muse to pop-art genious Andy Warhol, brilliantly portrayed here by Guy Pearce. Incandescent and irresistible, Edie captures Andy and the world’s attention until she falls for a rebellious rock star (Hayden Christenson) 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 dismisses her from the Factory when he discovers her affair. As her world collapses, Danny abandons her too, and she falls into a downward spiral of addiction and 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.

And still to come, but no release date has been anounced Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Dianne Arbus Director: Steven Shainberg (Secretary) Starring: Nicole Kidman, Robert Downey Jnr, Ty Burrell

Inspired by Patricia Bosworth’s book “ Diane Arbus: A Biography”, Fur pays homage to Arbus, a brilliant artistic talent who challenged accepted notions of beauty and ugliness and dramatically influenced American photography through her radical techniques and subject matter. Aptly, the filmmakers have conjured Fur, not as a biography, but as something different, unique and mysterious, intertwining real aspects of Arbus’ life with imaginary narrative. The film captures the real life dilemma of a 1958 housewife who is torn between love for her husband and children and her profound need to create and explore through her art.

Btw, I wish the NOVA would be able to label their choc tops as gluten-free or not!
