Consensus: Despite a dedicated performance by Sienna Miller, Factory Girl delves only superficially into her character, and ultimately fails to tell a coherent story.

Time Out

One wonders whether the documentary format would have better served the material than this ill-focused drama. Since real-life family and observers chime in over the end credits, perhaps the filmmakers were thinking the same thing.

When Sedgwick's whirl of liberation turns into addiction, clichés stall the plot.

Far less insight than the flattest of E! True Hollywood Story segments

I think Sienna Miller does a really nice job of capturing Edie Sedgwick, who really was the fore-runner to Paris Hilton and a lot of other people who are just famous for being famous.

Sedgwick's death seems as predestined as a Hollywood melodrama.

House Next Door

In Factory Girl, a jumbled account of the short life and photogenic hard times of the first Andy Warhol superstar, Edie Sedgwick, Sienna Miller makes Sedgwick into an archetypal over-confident blond with a mannered young Kathleen Turner croak.

It's a movie without that emotional spark that lets us connect with her, or anybody else.

You feel as if either you or the filmmakers have missed the point, if there ever actually was one.

Summing up a complex human being in two hours is like an MTV spot about Nelson Mandela cut to a Kanye West track. We don't really get to know Sedgwick at all.
