A glimpse into the life of the artist focusing on her relationship with Stieglitz, her husband. He cheated on her but their relationship allowed her to realize what she wanted in her life and she was someone who 'found' herself (as so few do) and created a life of clarity and connection to the essence of life in New Mexico. I feel she was also connecting with some Native past lives there as well.

Class-A acting from the two leads Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons and the 'Making of' in the special features shows what an amazing person Joan is as well, an appreciative being. Not a movie I would care to see again and one can imagine what Tarkovsky would have done with this material and landscape.

Bobby-Boy Balaban shows his true instincts on this piece of "Masterpiece Theatre" claptrap. Why Jeremy Irons would sign up to woodenly recite Bobby-Boy's drool is beyond me. The G. O'K. character is supposed to be "strong and independent" but just turns into a sniveling wretch.
Terence Davies might have made something of this - like he did with the quite fine quasi doc on Emily Dickinson, "A Quiet Passion". As it is, avoid this unless you wish to be tortured by the abysmal direction and acting

Wish the film had focused on her work more than the melodrama of relationships. This was kind of a waste of a LOT of acting talent....

Enjoyed this. Joan Allen, who we know from the Bourne movies, is excellent. Jeremy Irons is also effective - we have little sympathy for him A good introduction to Miss O'Keeffe, as to her motivation and view of life. Agree, there could have been a little more on her paintings, but we do see enough of them to feel they are a part of the movie. Well worth the watch.

Understated if O'Keeffe was intended to be the hero. Her triumph was in channeling and redirecting her energies. She had courage and conviction.

Beautiful movie but did not really go indepth about why/hiw she chose her subject matter or composition. Woul have been better to add more about the art and less about the personal relationship (marriage).

not hollywood's version of a biography--really enjoyed the truths of how a woman's life was back then - she played a central role in bringing an art style to Europe when the majority of influence flowed in the opposite direction - a champion of women in art when so few were able to break through the glass ceiling - incredible feminine style of abstract that many copy today
