Sienna Miller shines in Factory Girl. Read on:

If Andy Warhol is little more than a name for most people these days — an oddball figure that shows up via impersonator in any modern movie that needs to set its time and place as “alternative ’60s” — than the infamous artist’s muse, the doomed Edie Sedgwick, is even less of a pop culture touchstone. Just ask anyone in the Western world to name a famous “Edie” and you’ll probably get a response of “Edie Falco” or maybe “Edie Brickell.” Perhaps even “Edith Bunker,” but “Edie Sedgwick” would likely rank below all of these. So why make a movie about her now, all these years after her brief partnership with Warhol?

The Factory Girl filmmakers’ response to that question is that Edie is still affecting us today, be it in fashion or art or pop culture, whether we know it or not. One supposes that’s true, if only in that Warhol’s nonconformist yet attention-starved art was so influenced by his alliance with Edie, specifically his experimental films, as was his ongoing relationship with the mass media, which was supercharged for the year or two that he and Sedgwick were inseparable.

Sedgwick (Sienna Miller), a self-described “poor little rich girl,” comes from an old money family that is seemingly perfect but actually dysfunctional with a capital DYS. Sexually abused and manipulated by her father (or so the film tells us), Edie escapes to New York City in the mid-’60s where she hopes to make her mark, sell her art, become a star — basically be something more. Perhaps the clearest indication of her intentions comes later in the film when she explains that it was the image of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in the poster for Breakfast at Tiffany’s that inspired her. But Edie admits she never saw the movie or read the book — it was simply the sight of Hepburn’s glamour that she aspired to mimic.

Synopsis:

“Factory Girl” imaginatively unfolds the comet-like rise and fall of 60s “it girl” Edie Sedgwick, the blazing superstar who came to define both the glamour and the tragedy of our celebrity-obsessed culture. Sedgwick appeared to be the quintessential American princess, with her blue blood, her trust fund and her Harvard education, not to mention her ethereal beauty and vivacious charisma. But she was also a lost and fragile little girl; and when she met up with counter-culture anti-hero Andy Warhol, everything changed. Suddenly, Edie found herself at the center of a Pop Art universe bursting with sex, drugs, style and rock ‘n’ roll — and a mad rush for fame and fabulousness that was destined to spin out of control.

Arriving into the chaos of mid-60s New York, Edie (Sienna Miller) is taken under the wing of the famously deadpan artist Andy Warhol (Guy Pearce) who sees in her untamed vulnerability the makings of an irresistible muse. Warhol invites Edie into the wild world of The Factory, a former downtown hat factory he has transformed into a bohemian paradise. Here, a rag-tag mix of musicians, poets, artists, actors and misfits gather to create avant-garde movies during the day and throw glam parties all night long. Edie quickly ascends to become the star of Warhol’s movies, an idol at The Factory and a media darling. She is on top of the world when she falls in love with a larger-than-life rock star (Hayden Christensen), the man known as “the voice of a generation.” But when Edie becomes caught between Warhol’s world of sexy surfaces and her new love, she winds up rejected by both – and once again, set adrift in the modern world.
