Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
This non-formula drama tells the story of a likable, substance-abusing, unsuccessful singer and her relationship with her older sister, who coolly balances family demands with a flourishing singing career. Performances of rock and folk music are seamlessly integrated into the narrative as the emotional tale of the Seattle-based sisters unfolds.

Critic Reviews for Georgia
An intense study of sibling rivalry set in the Seattle music world, Georgia excels at the expression of painfully unresolvable family conflicts.
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.
Audience Reviews for Georgia
Great performance by Jennifer Jason Leigh makes this well worth your time.
a great film.
Not alot of people have heard of this one either. I caught it just a few years ago on Shotime, or one of those movie channels. The two women in the picture are sisters; 'Georgia' is the one on the right. The one on the left is 'Sadie Flood'. Sadie is big on alcohol, she sings, and she's really cool. Her sister Georgia is more conservative, she sings more like country type music. Sadie ends up with a local band that mostly play Velvet Underground covers at mostly bars, Bar Mitzvahs, and birthday partys. Sadie wants so much to connect with her sister, but her sister is really turned off by Sadie's lifestyle.
"Everything's 'jake', Jake!" "No one sings that song better than my sister... Who? Thank you, Comrade."
