I usually avoid MOWs (Movies of the Week - movies made for television, not theatrical release). I’ve worked on enough MOWs and watched enough and usually been disappointed. Last night I made an exception. I watched Lifetime’s biopic, Georgia O’Keefe. Two weeks before I finally caught Frida, initially created for theatrical release, on TV.
