As a bio-pic, Factory Girl is limited, but as a snapshot of Sedgwick and Warhol's fiery relationship, there is much to fascinate us.

Factory Girl is an effective evocation of a particular slice of recent history. The film benefits from Miller's turn as Edie, an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink performance that takes the poor girl from the heights and highs of fame to the depths and doom

Spoilt, rich, posh, vacuous and fame-obsessed - who better to play Edie Sedgwick? If she's acting or not, Miller is brilliant. Just a shame the film is so shallow too.

It's Sienna Miller's star that shines brightest in this heartbreaking cautionary tale.

Sienna Miller guarantees herself a bit more than 15 minutes with a strong performance in an otherwise dazed and confused film.

Kudos to Miller for her touching portrayal of a doomed icon. A shame the film's as substantial as one of Warhol's silver flotations.

A brave bid to recreate a modern American tragedy, with a revelatory turn by its lead actress.

The film is most interesting in its portrayal of Warhol as a cold-hearted user.

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.

Sienna Miller, revealing a depth and presence she's never hinted at before, inhabits Sedgwick with raw exuberance.

...Guy Pearce is fabulous as Warhol, delivering a complex portrait of the pop artist as a bundle of contradictions.

Miller gets old and used up before our eyes, and we not only see it, we see what it means to experience it. This is a movie about power, and its spectacle is that of a woman losing all of it.

This is Sienna Miller's chance to prove she can do more in a movie than look good while naked, and it turns out she's a good actress.

Pearce goes beyond the other skilled mimicries we've seen on screen from David Bowie, Jared Leto et al to locate the insecurity in Warhol's pettiness and cruelty.

Sienna Miller, with her glossed and dimpled party-girl smile, looks so much like the actual Edie Sedgwick that you may think, at moments, that you're seeing the real thing. That spooky look-alike allure does a lot for the movie.

No matter how much money or blue blood a woman has, you're still just one more exploitable, disposable babe. The title Factory Girl in fact, says it all.

Miller is wincingly good at playing up the innocence, with her junior high school declarations ('there's always hope') and the politely vacuous laugh she seems to deliver from her front teeth.

Miller is undeniably engaging. That's probably not enough to save the movie from obscurity, but it should, at the very least, guarantee bigger and better things for its star.
