'Factory Girl' for your consideration, plus trailer online

Oh, the innocent early days of Shreveport's foray into the movie industry.

Way back in January 2006 - I was just a wee reporter with a sharp pencil and dull ideas in those days - the makers of "Factory Girl" and a gaggle of paparazzi descended on our fair city. I shadowed the cast and crew during one fine afternoon shoot, watching Edie Sedgwick (Sienna Miller) beg for money, shoot heroin and look like a pixie from Halloween hell.

Aye, the warm make-believe memory is enough to make me wistful.

The Weinstein Co. has finally confirmed its Oscar hopes for the feature film. It opens Dec. 29.

Click here to see the trailer! (Thanks, Anon.)

Yay, can't wait to see the movie. Thanks for posting the link to the trailer. I haven't seen it, yet. Just surfed in here from Google Alerts (for Ed).

The trailer looks outstanding. I love the aesthetic of the film, the way the portions with titles mimic the screenprinting style Warhol used. I'm also impressed by what looks like a really clever script - the bit with Warhol and the priest is hilarious.

Hayden Christensen's Dylan? Hmmmm...
