I found this film totally entrancing. Edie Sedgwick was the “It” girl of the mid-1960s and she set the bar high for celebs to follow. Her quick rise to fame as part of Andy Warhol’s entourage, her short dance at the center of New York’s party life, and her ultimate fall into drugs and poverty are well documented here. Sienna Miller plays Edie perfectly – the look, the style, the hollowness. Her relationship with “Quinn” could have been developed more, but with Bob Dylan threatening to sue for defamation of character, it makes sense that a lot was left out. The accompanying interviews with those who knew the real Edie are fascinating, too.
