Although Georgia O’Keeffe didn’t trust words, she made definitive statements for her time, mostly through her art. This film, shot in Santa Fe, N.M., chronicles Georgia O’Keeffe’s discovery in the early part of the last century by famous New York photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and the tumultuous love affair between them that included marriage and infidelity. Joan Allen as O’Keeffe, America’s most significant female painter, and Jeremy Irons as Stieglitz, along with numerous other actors, give us an insight into several decades of the art world of New York and Taos, N.M.
This movie is not rated and runs 89 minutes.
