A nearly perfect movie about a nearly total screw-up.

An intense study of sibling rivalry set in the Seattle music world, Georgia excels at the expression of painfully unresolvable family conflicts.

In Grosbard's study of siblings rivalry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, as the more aggressive but less talented sister, again shows why she's the most brilliant actress of her generation.

A raw, heartfelt, sometimes painful showcase for Jennifer Jason Leigh's undeniable talent.

Examines the life and struggles of a mediocre rock singer whose high aspirations cause her needless pain.

Georgia has its weaknesses, but acting is not one of them.

Unless you're just dying to hear Velvet Underground tunes played (badly) at bar mitzvahs, I'd recommend keeping this Georgia off your mind.
