"Everything's 'jake', Jake!" "No one sings that song better than my sister... Who? Thank you, Comrade."
Please get Georgia off my mind. In this plotless waste of film, Leigh is an unsuccessful alcoholic rock singer, living in the shadow of her famous and ultra-proper sister (Winningham). Leigh is good, but not great, mostly because her character is tailor-written to accommodate her limited acting abilities. (She and the screenwriter co-produced the project.) Oscar-nominated Winningham is believable both as Leigh's sister and as a successful recording star; her singing is great. But the bottom line is that a character study needs some sort of plot in which to study the characters. After two hours, you're exactly where you've started and you wonder why. Queer Quotient: Leigh is awfully friendly with a lesbian band at one point in the film. By the finale, I wondered if she was going to join them. Her hair is all buzzed off, and she looks more androgynous than Michael Jackson.
