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.
Burning the Candle at Both Ends
I think this movie could have been a lot better. Maybe is it just difficult to portray Warhol's Factory in a way that communicates the weight of what they were up to. Or, were they just a fraud? Or, was it just the crazy 60s? Edie Sedgwick was not the first person Warhol pushed over the edge. A cameraman who worked for him was also driven mad (A Walk into The Sea: Danny Williams & the Warhol Factory) Both characters were dependent on the attention of Warhol. And both people were "dropped" by Warhol. The film does a good job of showing the sincerity and charm of Sedgewick and then her disillusionment, and druggy, awful decline.
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 fiction i read everything about Edie and this movie is all lies! Although Sienna I think did an amazing job acting she's a great actress guy pearce also did good playin Andy ! But I wish they would have been true to the real Edie also iTunes needs to get Ciao! Manhattan Edie sedgwicks last movie ever made that's a great film
