A dazzling and kaleidoscopic journey into the life and times of Edie Sedgwick, the Andy Warhol superstar who helped invent the Sixties. The talented and radiantly beautiful daughter of the would-be aristocrat Francis Sedgwick, Edie fled the oppression of her Santa Barbara ranch home to reinvent herself in mid-Sixties Manhattan as the It Girl of the moment, a combination style icon, supernova personality, and old-school movie star who blurred the boundaries between being and acting. Edie rides the wave from abused girl to world-class superstar to lost soul as America moves from the Eisenhower Fifties to the counterculture Sixties. Epic and intimate, "Dizzy Up the Girl" is a chronicle of changing times and breaking hearts in the tradition of "Boogie Nights" and "Casino."

Writer Matthew Wilder is also attached to direct.
