Product Description

Star-studded movie about the famous artist! Celebrated photographer and art impresario Alfred Steiglitz (Jeremy Irons) is shocked to learn that the extraordinary drawings he has recently discovered were rendered by a woman. Deciding to display the work of then-unknown artist Georgia O’Keeffe (Joan Allen) in his gallery without her knowledge, the fiercely private artist orders him to remove the collection. Once Alfred convinces her to allow him to become her benefactor and to champion her artistry, their relationship evolves as they fall deeply in love. Alfred leaves his wife for Georgia, but soon finds her rising star is poised to eclipse his light. As their relationship suffers, Alfred finds twisted ways to emotionally wound her, including taking a younger lover. Georgia’s search for solace moves her west, where she finds new inspiration for her paintings – and ultimately her own voice – in the New Mexico landscape.

While there are numerous documentaries about the iconoclastic modernist painter Georgia O'Keeffe, there has been a dearth of dramatized renditions of her life. Maybe the waiting has not been in vain, because we now have this lovely and respectable biopic courtesy of director Bob Balaban. Georgia O'Keeffe stars Joan Allen as Georgia, and Jeremy Irons as the astute yet eccentric gallerist and artist Alfred Steiglitz. Though the couple's artistic reign was extensive and highly influential, the crux of this film's narrative centers on Georgia and Alfred's tumultuous love affair. Beginning with a scene in which Steiglitz is already exhibiting O'Keeffe's work, they meet on conflicting terms that lead to her staying in New York as Steiglitz quickly falls in love with her enigmatic charm. From here, the viewer begins to understand how Steiglitz fortified O'Keeffe's career and reputation in the art world, while he was detrimental to her personal life. Though the film does clearly sympathize with O'Keeffe's challenging relationship to Steiglitz, it also does a fair job of showing how important a character he was to the modern art movement. While Georgia O'Keeffe is a drama and not an art historical documentary, it does give one a solid sense of the period's intellectual climate. It focuses chronologically on the latter half of O'Keeffe's life, when she discovers solace and inspiration in Taos and Abiquiu, New Mexico. In the end, the film is also a tender portrait of a liberated woman who was a protofeminist and a fierce talent. --Trinie Dalton

This is a made-for-TV movie which has now been released by Sony Pictures on DVD in 2010. It won multiple awards as a TV performance. Joan Allen BECOMES Georgia O'Keefe, the way George Scott became General Patton--I think now I will always see her as Georgia O'Keefe. Jeremy Irons gives a great performance (as usual) as her much older husband, Alfred Stieglitz. I have always admired Georgia O'Keefe but did not know details of her life until I watched this documentary. It's a great look at her development as an artist, her personality, and her marriage. Stieglitz was a pioneer of American photography, and his last great photographs seem to be his series of photographs of O'Keefe.
The film is 1.5 hours long. Subtitles are available in multiple languages and also (unusual for a TV-to-DVD production) there are previews of other films (most of them not so well-matched to this documentary) and a short "making of" special feature. The film is not rated but if it were, it would probably rate a PG-13 for occasional partially-nude scenes.
The cinematography is beautiful, the acting is high-quality, the dialog is good and of course, the paintings are beautiful: I just wish there had been even more examples of her art in the movie. If you're interested in Georgia O'Keefe in the slightest, you will enjoy this film. I recommend it.

This film may have won many awards for the performances, but I was disappointed in the lack of focus on art and the creative process, something that was everything for the very person that it is about. Certainly it is of interest to know the woman behind the paintings, but how can you have an autobiography about an artist and say so little about her art? The film should have been entitled "The Love Life of Georgia O'Keeffe" or "Stieglitz and O'Keeffe: A Love-Hate Relationship."
I was stunned that the movie does not make the connection between her early life in Wisconsin and the way she saw the forms on the hillside there (later developed in New Mexico), or how the time alone in Texas before she met Stieglitz helped her develop her very own artistic style by digging deep into her own unconscious. There was no mention of what contemporary artists influenced her, or why she painted flowers "so big." There is not nearly enough focus on her life on her own in New Mexico, how or why she bought her own place there, became her own woman, and what she did after Stieglitz had passed away.
I understand a movie cannot show everything in a person's life, but I can't help but wonder what Georgia O'Keeffe would think about this movie: Where's the art? --Julie McCarty, Freelance writer

This movie is a beautiful homage to Georigia O'Keefe. Even if you are not familiar with her paintings, it will move you in many ways. Joan Allen's performance cannot be overstated, it was as if she literally slipped inside this talented woman in a way that is almost scary. The art can bring tears to your eyes, and I must also give a shout out to Tyne Daly. She fills all her roles with such clarity that there is no such thing as a small part when she embodies it. Jeremy Irons is once again accomplished as the philandering husband/art dealer who is so selfish he cannot understand why he cannot have his cake and eat it too. The scene where she stands up to him when he tries to take credit for her talent made me want to stand up and cheer. Best of all, if you are not familiar with O'Keeffe's work, it will make you want to research and learn. What more can a film such as this accomplish?

Finally, something on Georgia O'Keeffe, a very good TV production, but it left a sour taste in my mouth. A bio emphasizing O'Keeffe and Stieglitz(got the spelling right) more than about her art or her beloved time in New Mexico. It does contain both, but, I think, in painfully lacking quantities.

Summary: Unknown, turn of the century, artist Georgia O'Keeffe meets artsy, philandering, much older and married Alfred Stieglist who heavily promotes her to eventual fame and a fiery romance. He, of course, cheats, mistreats and manipulates her in a self-centered, petulant, controlling way. But she loves him, and spends the movie dealing with that while trying to discover her place in art.

We've travelled the last 3 years to the Santa Fe/Taos area; hit the museums, enjoyed her artwork immensely; this year we visited Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch, saw her house there. I wish they would have included more on that aspect of her life.

The actors are very good. Jeremy Irons is superb, brilliant! Joan Allen, whom my wife immediately said, "She's too old!"(true, O'Keeffe met Stieglitz when she was 29, Allen is 53-but such is Hollywood) does a fine job showing pain and compassion. Tyne Daly shines as her friend, but as much of the cast was way under-utilized. This story needed desperately to be a mini-series, only 89 minutes?

Researching their lives, the script appears, I would say, about 90% accurate. There are some major points that the filmmakers, as they often do, took liberties with the truth. One example, in the movie she shows shock at him exhibiting his private nude photos of her, but what I've read, she actually knew about it, and they both agreed to just leave her name off the prints.
