Dating for the over sixties
Mrs Sedgwick defied doctors and fate and had eight children, two of whom died before Edie - one hanged himself, the other rode his motorcycle into a bus.As a father, Francis Minturn "Duke" Sedgwick was larger than life and much more terrible.A spike in inflation triggered by a fall in the value of the pound since last year’s Brexit vote has made saving trickier across a range of demographics. Data on Wednesday showed that weekly earnings across the UK grew at an annual rate of 2.5 per cent in the three months to October, up on last month’s figure but still significantly below the latest inflation reading of 3.1 per cent, which is near a six-year high."Her fog, her amphetamine, and her pearls..." With three nouns, in "Just Like a Woman" (said to have been inspired by her), Bob Dylan deftly summed up his friend Edie Sedgwick, the wayward princess of Andy Warhol's multimedia Factory.Her stick figure, huge eyes and chopped-off hair suited the style of the early Sixties - Jean Seberg in the movies, Twiggy in the glossies- and Edie was, briefly, on the fashion pages.
Warhol and Edie were, horribly, made for each other.
The movie, which was frantically re-cut prior to its Oscar-qualifying release at one theatre in Los Angeles (though the director George Hickenlooper says the changes had nothing to do with Dylan's objections) will be edited again before its wider US release later this month.
Early reviews have been mixed, with The Hollywood Reporter praising its "bright intensity" and saying that Miller "brings to life Sedgwick's legendary allure"; the Los Angeles Times calling it "simplistic" and "superficial"; and Variety finding the movie "tame" and Miller "whiny".
Two-thirds – or 64 per cent – of workers in their fifties admitted that they are yet to ramp up their saving habits in the run-up to retirement.

Strained by the rising cost of living, almost a fifth of UK workers in their fifties and sixties are unable to save anything for retirement, new research has revealed.
