Great American painter deserves better writing
31 December 2003 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Amy Brenneman does her best with a weak script concerning a few months in Mary Cassatt's life in Paris of 1887. Loaded with late 20th Century-style dialogue, such as a girl yearning independence by "having it all", it is aimed solely at latter-day teenaged girls without a hint of the period's necessary history. The costumes & sets are lovely, and the recreations of some of Cassatt's early classic works are interesting, if again historically inaccurate: according to Mark Harden's Artchive, the little girl on the blue chair was the daughter of a friend of Degas', not Miss Cassatt's niece.
