Sienna Miller stars in area debut of "Factory Girl"

April 25, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Film Society presents the area debut of "Factory Girl," starring Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce, Friday through Sunday, May 4-6, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 and 5 p.m. General admission is $5 and $3 for students. The 2006 film is rated R for drug use, sexual content, nudity and language and has a run time of 90 minutes.

"Factory Girl" is based on the true-life tragic story of Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick. Sedgwick (played by Miller) leaves art school and moves to Manhattan where she is introduced in 1965 to Warhol (Pearce). Warhol is taken by the beautiful Sedgwick and invites her into his Factory, the loft apartment Warhol owns where friends and other artists help Warhol with his projects. Sedgwick gets caught up in the drug-infused culture and meets a Bob Dylan-esque singer (Hayden Christensen). She falls in love with him and starts to drift away form Warhol and more into drugs.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's historic East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (269) 387-8221 or visit Western Film Society at www.rso.wmich.edu/wfs.
