A Jennifer Jason Leigh moment

Sadie Flood wants to be a famous singer like her big sister Georgia.But she has her own demons, and she seeks comfort from drugs and alcohol.Georgia (1995) is a music drama directed by Ulu Grosbard.Jennifer Jason Leigh gives a strong performance in the lead playing the troubled singer Sadie Flood.She is the heart and soul of this film, as her on-screen sister Mare Winningham said, but yet only Mare received an Academy Award nomination.Leigh's mother Barbara Turner wrote the film.Ted Levine plays the part of Jake.Max Perlich plays Axel Goldman.John Doe portrays Bobby.John C. Reilly is Herman, the drummer.The late singer Jimmy Witherspoon plays Trucker.The most memorable moment in this movie must be when Sadie sings Van Morrison's Take Me Back with that Janis Joplin voice.If you have some time, don't miss this independent film.
