Overview

The true story of one woman's brief and ultimately tragic flirtation with fame in the 1960s provides the basis for this biographical drama. In 1943, Edie Sedgwick Sienna Miller was born to a wealthy and socially prominent family, and she grew up with beauty and money, but also a history of mental illness; she was hospitalized with an eating disorder in her late teens, and by the time she was 21, two of her seven siblings had died before their time. In 1964, Edie moved to New York City, and quickly made a splash on the Manhattan social scene; she became friendly with the famous pop artist Andy Warhol Guy Pearce, who was fascinated by her gamine loveliness and her quirky personality. Warhol wasted no time in casting her in one of his underground movies, and she quickly became a crucial part of his retinue of "superstars." Fashion icon Diana Vreeland Illeana Douglas was convinced Edie had the looks and charm to also become a successful model, and soon she was gracing the pages of Life, Vogue, and Glamour. But Edie's instability was hardly helped by her new fast-lane lifestyle, and when she met Billy Quinn Hayden Christensen, a folk rock singer-songwriter often cited as "the voice of a generation," he persuaded her that Warhol and his associates were simply using her fame and beauty for their own gain, and she found herself torn between two powerful mentors, one of whom had become her lover as well. Factory Girl also co-stars Jimmy Fallon, Mena Suvari, and Tara Summers as regulars at the Warhol "Factory." The character of Musician was inspired in part by Bob Dylan, who was romantically involved with Edie Sedgwick for a brief time.

    an Art Film.

    I didn't go into this moving wanting to learn more about andy warhol and edie sedgewick, I really didn't care. I wanted to see how the characters interacted with each other. The movie isn't a drama, it isn't funny, it doesn't have any action. Just the graphics and effects with music make it artsy. I'm not saying that's what makes a movie horrible, its what makes it kind of uninteresting.
    But the I really loved the character choice and the scenes.
    This movie really motivates me, whenever I watch it, I feel like picking up and pen and drawing.

    Very Insightful

    Knowing a full details of the whole Andy Warhol/Factory scene, I didn't realize how egocentric he truly was. He just didn't about anybody. Edie come across as a very convincing three-dimensional character that was highly unstable, childlike in some ways, and hopelessly naive yet lovable. Her taste in men was her downfall. The character of the folk singer, clearly Bob Dylan, we all know was a womanizer and Andy Warhol was childish and impish. It is sad such a talented woman had to go the rout of death.

    A reviewer

    I have heard and read all about the madness of Edie and Andy but to see it first hand was amazing. The film was both a documentary and tragedy, a story about two pop culture icons that brought a new edge to the sixties. From the loves, to the lies, from the glamour, and to most horrifying lows. The two main characters go through such immense jealous, tragedy, and trials that you cant but hope for a happy ending. Sadly the ending, being fact, doesnt end happily ever after, but these two icons have quite the story to tell. Its a pretty good film I have to say, and a great biography.
