This is the story of Valerie Solanas who was a 60s radical preaching hatred toward men in her "Scum" manifesto. She wrote a screenplay for a film that she wanted Andy Warhol to produce. After many times of ignoring her, Valerie shot him.
Mary Harron was inspired to write the movie after reading the SCUM Manifesto, the anti-men rhetoric Valerie Solanas published in the 1960s.
I have always found that socially unacceptable people make the best lovers because they are more sensitive.
While Valerie is in revolutionary guy's apartment, we hear "Kick Out The Jams" by the MC5 cranking on the stereo. This scene takes place in June 1968. This very well-known MC5 recording, however, was not recorded until October 30 or 31, 1968 (according to the liner notes), and released in 1969.
