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

Might be my favorite example of a movie that compels you toward binaristic assumptions but keeps outwitting them, with its immersed conviction in the palpable, sonic, psychological, atmospheric world that it inhabits and constructs.

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.

Palo Alto Weekly

Jennifer Jason Leigh's performance as the sister who lives for her turn in the spotlight electrifies this look at two very different siblings.

Georgia is not a simply plotted movie about descent and recovery, but a complex, deeply knowledgeable story about how alcoholism and mental illness really are family diseases.

A painful though sadly humorous portrait of sisterhood deftly written by Leigh's mom, Barbara Turner, and directed with just-right spareness by Ula Grosbard.

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