Georgia O'Keeffe - Movie Review

The Redbox had squat so Georgia O'Keeffe
looked intriguing and, to a certain extent, it was. Yep, there was her glorious work of flowers examined so closely they became abstract and there was her relationship and subsequent marriage to Stieglitz and all that entailed. I suppose it was mostly accurate. There was the usual stuff about artistic freedom and some nice recreations of NYC in the teens and 20s of the last century and New Mexico, of course, but nothing really earth shattering throughout the movie. Just a sort of interesting biopic about an original, and accessible, American artist. A nice change of pace and well worth a buck but I'll bet there's a better episode about her on PBS or the Biography Channel.
