Despite its flimsy veneer of fiction - this is Edie's story and final testament - it's sad, very sad, she died shortly after completion.
Obviously, the exploitation involved is beyond redemption - is now appropriate to speak the truth?
Edie was a rich kid with a hefty trust fund, she was quite pretty, not beautiful.
She bought her way into Warhol's inner sanctum and, let's face it - nothing in terms of filmmaking came out of The Factory that was any good - including everything by Edie.
This film simply continues the exploitation - even more so.
CIAO! MANHATTAN parallels Andy Warhol Factory star Edie Sedgwick's glory days in the late 60's through her inevitable downfall and the tragic addiction that would take her life only weeks after filming wrapped in 1971.
