Plot Summary
Georgia Flood (Mare Winningham) is a well-to-do folk-singer with a stable family and a loving husband. Her younger sister, Sadie (Jennifer Jason Leigh), is the lead singer in a rowdy punk-rock band. Living in Georgia's shadow causes Sadie to become obsessed with her, and she tries everything she can to live up to her big sister's achievements. Unfortunately it is this very obsession --coupled with her self-destructive tendencies and rampant drug abuse-- that keep her spiraling down the drain.

  • Georgia, written with rare honesty and economy by Leigh's mother, Barbara Turner, and very sensitively directed by Ulu Grosbard, is a tough-minded look at show business and families. [10 Jan 1996]

  • It's one of the great sister movies and one of the great performance movies. [26 Jan 1996]

  • A complex, deeply knowledgeable story about a truly lost soul and her downward spiral. show more
