Judy Davis stars in a dual role. She's Nina Bailey, a tough government tax investigator, and Nina's long dead mother, Georgia White, who died under decidedly mysterious circumstances. Nina's investigation into her mother's death is triggered when someone arranges an exhibition of Georgia's old photographs, and invites her to the show. Film relies on a Rashoman-like series of flashbacks of the killing that provide conflicting versions of what happened but they're awkwardly executed. Overall, the film is only moderately interesting. It never quite gets off the ground, probably because the title character, Georgia, remains a cypher.
