Did You Know?


The scene with Mary Elizabeth Winstead was shot after principal photography had taken place. Her character, Ingrid Superstar, was hired and promoted by Warhol as an intentional parody of Edie, after their falling-out. See more »


Edie Sedgwick's relationship to Nico is depicted incorrectly: in reality they were friends and Edie warned Nico about Andy Warhol's behavior. Edie's death was very sad for Nico. See more »


Syd Pepperman: [regarding Edie] What do you want me to do?
Billy Quinn: I dunno. See if she needs anything...

Billy Quinn: I'd help her if I could.

Edie Sedgwick
31 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Not the best biopic I've seen recently (actually saw it on DVD last night). I have read "Edie" by Jean Stein about a million times, so I could figure out a lot about what was wrong in the movie. I also thought the use of the musician character was quite amusing, simply because he was supposed to be a portrayal of Bob Dylan, and from what I have read, Bob Dylan barely even remembers Edie Sedgwick.

Another goof I caught in the movie was when Edie was listing all the popular drugs at the Factory, was that Adderall was mentioned. This drug did not come out until 1996. I was rather surprised it was mentioned, because if they had been on methylphenidate at the time, Ritalin was probably their drug of choice. It was available at the time. I myself have been on Adderall (for ADHD) for a very brief period in the 90s, and it was really horrible...I can't possibly imagine anyone wanting to be on that thing.

In the 90s I knew a guy who had been Warhol's room mate in the 1950s and a very, very minor character in Andy's later life, I asked him once if he ever knew Edie, and he just groaned and said, "she was the MOST BORING girl I ever met in my life." End of discussion.
