deeply impressionable

everyone i know who read 'edie' fell in love with the genuine kooky individual of the title. she was truly the stuff of legend. books, films, and tons of photos have infiltrated the hearts of many who can't get enough of her. among other underground films, she starred in 'ciao! manhattan' which was an absolute train wreck, though more shocking as it slowly unfolded before the viewers eyes. edie sedgewick's is a very strong story that proves 'intervention' can fail. perhaps she just never received the proper kind.

I went to a party once and there was a palm reader there. When she looked at my hand she just — she froze. And I said to her, ‘I know. My life line is broken. I know I won’t live past 30.’
Edie Sedgwick (1943—1971)
