These Complicated Women
"These Complicated Women" considers the deeply conflicted, passionate, and fascinating lives of some famous and talented women from the last century: “Hallie” about Hallie Flanagan, a true story of the ambitious Federal Theater Director during the WPA who was beset by personal tragedy yet became the first female Guggenheim scholar. “Modotti,” is inspired by true events. Tina Modotti, an Italian beauty who emigrated to the U.S, then leaves for Mexico in the early 1920s to learn photography with her lover photographer Edward Weston before becoming a Communist party leader alongside Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Our third story, “Jackie, Maria and Lee,” is about Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Maria Callas, and Lee Radziwill and is a fictional drama inspired by true events. It takes place in heaven where the three deceased women confront one another about anger, hurt, and misunderstandings from their time on earth. Then, Aristotle Onassis comes onto the scene from where he sits, stuck in Purgatory to add his grievances.
