Factory Girl 1.0 stars

Morbid remembrance of the blip-like rise and fall of Edie Sedgwick, tricked out with pseudodocumentary gimmicks by the sometime documentarist George Hickenlooper. Andy Warhol, well mimicked by Guy Pearce, is not hard to make into a compelling figure. But Sedgwick -- elevator heiress, socialite, art groupie, temporary "it" girl, drug addict, castoff, burnout -- is a harder sell. (Sienna Miller would have an easier time of it if she were playing, as she seems capable of playing, Natalie Wood or even Mimsy Farmer.) Bob Dylan, the only living member of this triangle, is neutered by pseudonym. Hayden Christensen, Jimmy Fallon, Shawn Hatosy, Illeana Douglas. 2007.
