About the Movie
In 1965, Edie Sedgwick, the beautiful and wealthy young party girl drops out of Harvard and heads to New York to become Holly Golightly. When she meets a hungry young artist named Andy Warhol, he promises to make her the star she always wanted to be. And, like a supernova, she explodes on the New York scene only to find herself slowly losing grip on reality.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Whatever shrewdness or charm Sedgwick possessed that caused people to believe that she was a revolutionary figure in New York night life, it doesn't come through in this movie.
Rotten: Not everyone is crushed by fame, but almost everyone is flattened by it.
Rotten: When Sedgwick's whirl of liberation turns into addiction, cliches stall the plot.
Rotten: You feel as if either you or the filmmakers have missed the point, if there ever actually was one.
Don't Believe Every Negative Review You Read
I have recently been looking for a dark movie, well not really dark, but more artistic or off the wall. When I was searching through itunes I randomly found this movie, and said to myself: "Ohh Why not?". So I'm not going to spoil any of this movie, but it is truly amazing from start to finish. Some of you may hate this movie, and some of you (me included) will love this movie. Basically "Factory Girl" is the tragic tale of a glamourous famous woman who has unfortunately been forgotten by many. In the end Edie Sedgwick does succumb to her drug addiction and problems, which is sad but true. This movie is heartbreaking in some parts, but so glamourous and edgy in other parts. I first rented this movie, and now I'm so glad I did, I'm buying it right now!! So ignore the Rotten Tomatoes review above and read this, give this artistic and tragic movie if a chance if you like this sort of thing. Other wise this isn't the movie for you. Rent it first, then buy!
This was a great bio pic...I think the film really made the Edie character "poor little rich girl" very much relatable. Sienna Miller does an excellent job of portraying the character and the actor who plays Andy Warhol...well I'll just say it shows Mr. Warhol in a very different light! I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, but it was so far under the radar I forgot about it. The film does not dissapoint, it deserves some sort of critical acclaim.
This movie is great. I am extremely into this era and especially Andy Warhol's work. Eddie Sedgwick was his muse, but I love how free spirited and loving she was. She got involved with the wrong people and drugs took ahold of her resulting in a depressing departure. The movie is about Eddie becoming best friends with Andy Warhol, but as the tables turn, Warhol takes advantage of Eddie's beauty, talent, and appeal. A great movie if you are into art, drugs, and ofcourse Eddie :)
