Storyline

A beautiful, wealthy young party girl drops out of Radcliffe in 1965 and heads to New York to become Holly Golightly. When she meets a hungry young artist named Andy Warhol, he promises to make her the star she always wanted to be. And like a super nova she explodes on the New York scene only to find herself slowly lose grip on reality... Written by Richard Golub

A film that accentuates the beauty and ugliness in human art
22 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this film makes art out of artists. it is a beautiful, artful depiction of three people: andy warhol, edie, and bob Dylan (billy quinn).

many will say that it is not the accurate, hard fact bio pic that many people rely on such to be; but like the doors, it paints artful depictions of such iconic legends.

all performances are done well. andy warhol is portrayed beautifully and harshly by guy pierce. sienna miller does a wonderful job as a beautiful girl valued only for her beauty and quirks. billy quinn... or bob Dylan... is portrayed just like the arrogant youth he was at times... bob Dylan was never always this sage who had best intentions in mind. he was human. and too many people forget that when hayden christensen plays him, he's portraying the real person.

beautifully crafted.
