you've got some of your mother in you, after all.
12 April 2010 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

Is "Georgia" a great film? Well, not particularly. Judy Davis gives a particularly good performance(s), the sort where she gets to have a lot of attitude, something she always does well. But there isn't a whole lot else going for this picture. Writer/director Ben Lewin creates a world that's convincing enough to get into, than twists it up in a knot like most thrillers. Somewhere, it becomes unconvincing beneath the weight of things. Still, the supporting cast is much of what holds "Georgia" together. I especially liked Marshall Napier as the retired cop.

I suppose I would have liked more character development. In fact, we're hardly introduced to the title character herself. It's hard to empathize with the death of someone who barely existed. Not to say this wasn't an enjoyable film to watch, though. You should enjoy it too. Give it a shot for Judy Davis.
