Did You Know?


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 »


Part of this movie was filmed at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. When Georgia walks out of the house in the morning she is barefoot. This would never happen in real life due to scorpions, fire ants, Cholla cactus thorns, tumbleweed thorns, and a plant called goat's-head weed. This plant has woody thorns that give the plant its nickname of puncturevine. See more »

Joan Allen superb!!!
4 July 2010 | by jz-rcswSee all my reviews

I loved this film, mainly because of Joan Allen's brilliance. Jeremy Irons, on the other hand, was overwrought and made the Stieglitz character more of a caricature than the mercurial, talented artist that Stieglitz was in his own right.All of the other characters were incidental, although Ed Begley Jr. acquitted himself admirably.

The New Mexico landscape was wonderful and anything that gave us a glimpse of O'Keefe's talent added to the virtues of the film. Ultimately, though, it was Allen's luminosity that made the film successful; she brought the character alive in a way that no other actress could. She seems to have an uncanny ability, not unlike Meryl Streep, to BECOME any character rather than simply playing a part and following a script. Don't know if she received any awards for the role, but should have.
