For years in the early 1990s Michelle Pfeiffer was attached to her own Georgia O'Keefe project with her then production company Via Rose Productions. See more »
The movie makes a big point about O'Keefe painting the ladies lounge at Radio City Music Hall. In fact, she acquiesced to Steiglitz and turned down the contract and did no planning or actual painting on the project. See more »
Don't get me wrong, Allen and Irons are quite good in the film. (Irons seems to be channeling Daniel Plainview) Im just a little disappointed...
I personally would have liked to see her actually painting a bit more...or at least some insight to her thought process. The plot is really about her seemingly symbiotic relationship with Alfred Stiglitz.
There also seems to be a lot of gray areas in her later life that the film just sums up in a monologue, but Its a made for T.V movie...I guess we cant have everything. Something tells me it should (was it meant to be?) have been made into a feature. Its not bad, just could have been better.
