JEREMY IRONS IN "GEORGIA O'KEEFFE"

American artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s personal life and career are brought to life by actress Joan Allen in tonight's Lifetime film,
American artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s personal life and career are brought to life by actress Joan Allen in tonight's Lifetime film, "Georgia O'Keeffe," a no miss event that turns in interesting and compelling performances above and below the line. American artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s personal life and career arebrought to life by actress Joan Allen in tonight's Lifetime film, "Georgia O'Keeffe," a no miss event thatturns in interesting and compelling performancesabove and below the line. O'Keeffe's poverty and humble beginnings are touched on as Allen opens up to her lifetime love and nemesis, Bohemian and worldly lover then husband, Alfred Stieglitz,acalculating dealer who elevated hername and broke her heart repeatedly. Jeremy Irons is perfect as the fiercely intense lover of art who seduced O'Keeffe while he was married, then promoted her work as his repeated infidelities drove her away to Taos, over and again.
O'Keeffe was a Texan who became an art teacher in South Carolina, who first turned out abstract drawings; these drawings landed in the hands of photographer Alfred Stieglitz in New York. Their subsequent meeting set off a lifetime path of love and work entwined. In his life, Stieglitz was a child of great intelligence and fortunate privilege; his immigrant family returned him to Germany for further education to complement his private and public New York studies. The film, "Georgia O'Keeffe" (9 p.m., Saturday, Lifetime, TV-14), is rich in great performances, and excellence in the crafts that you willbe left with new found respect for a network often castigated as a woman's weep fest of overwrought programming. This film elevates them to the big leagues of the premium cablers. Is this a perfect film, a true-to-life biopic? No. But it delivers a well-acted insightful look at the personal life oftwogreat artists of different mediums. It could have included more salacious and heartbreaking truths of Stieglitz's personal lifeand dalliances, but stays focused on his muse and lifetime love O'Keeffe, who eventually fades into the West. For what it is, the cast and crew have delivered an enjoyable film. Joan Allen is resplendent as the American visionary who emerged in what was dubbed the golden age of female ascendancy as the best-known woman painter of the 20th century.
O'Keeffe's inspiration from nature and specifically her rendering of the feminine genital form in her art scandalized some in the day. "O'Keeffe" follows their volatile and torturous relationship over half a century of living together and apart, a celebration and damnation of open marriage,and art above all personal concerns. Bob Balaban directs "Georgia O'Keeffe,"and Michael Cristofer penned the script. Of note are the performances of Jenny Gabrielle as the besotted Dorothy Norman, Tyne Daly as hedonisitic and loquacious patroness Mabel Dodge, as well as the masterful lensing by DP Paul Elliot, who ate up the New Mexico scenery. Also top form was the amazing costuming by Heather Chaffee, and Enid Arias and Dorothy Pearl's pitch-perfect work, department heads for Hair and Makeup, respectively. "Georgia O'Keeffe" airs tonight, Saturday September 19th on Lifetime. It re-airs Sunday. September 20and Tuesday, September 22.

HOLLIDAY GRAINGER AS DIANA RIVERS AND SIMON McBURNEY AS BROCKLEHURST IN NEW ADAPTION OF
JANE EYRE

Holliday Grainger on Jane Eyre - IMDb Simon McBurney on Jane Eyre-IMDb

Jane's story is one of the quiet triumph of virtue and the power of the human heart over circumstance. Orphaned as a baby, young Jane Eyre was sent to live with her paternal Uncle Reed and his wife, at Gateshead Hall. Though her Uncle promised to raise Jane as one of his own, he soon died as well, and Jane was raised by her resentful Aunt. Preferring to spend her time among her own spoiled brood - Georgiana, John Jr and Eliza - Aunt Reed banished Jane to the indifferent care of servants, and was harsh and unforgiving of the child otherwise.

At the age of ten, Jane was locked overnight in the room in which her uncle had died, and went through a nervous fit. This was the first of a series of "supernatural" encounters that occur in Jane's story. Upon recovering, her aunt was urged to send the child to school by the family doctor, and the family's minister, the Reverend Mr. Brocklehurst, agreed to send Jane to Lowood Asylum, a charitable institute. Thus Jane escaped one prison only to find herself in another.


Lowood Asylum proved to be a trial for Jane, who, though she eventually found friends and a sound education, also encountered a character inquisition, and the chronic hunger and low-quality food and daily goods that were the lot of charity-pupils. She survived a typhoid plague at the school, which brought attention to the students' standard of living. Following the plague, the school was reformed along more lenient lines, and became "in its time, a truly useful institution". Jane remained at Lowood for another eight years, six as a pupil, and a further two as pupil-teacher. During that time, she developed her natural artistic talent, but remained, in her mind, as plain and poor as ever.
