This dramatic, effusive interpretation of Georgia O'Keeffe's life focuses more on her relationships than on her art. Sure, she sasses her patron, telling him to leave her alone when she is working, but his narcissistic behavior takes a toll on her to the point where O'Keeffe suffers a nervous breakdown. A little less schmaltz and a little more substance would have benefited this otherwise eye-catching portrait. Fans of the artist will enjoy this jaunt into her private life, but a visit to the museum will do more to scratch the connoisseur's itch.
