A Great Family Drama
18 May 2007 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Sometimes a movie comes around that has important subject matter to present. Georgia Rules is an unpretentious, entertaining, and realistic look at child abuse and the way that in really impacts individuals. Lindsay Lohan gives a wonderful performance with dynamic and authentic emotions. Some may see stereotypical, melodrama, but on the surface, this movie hits just the right level of performance and entertainment, and handles its material in a sensitive but not overly dramatic way like serious, independent movies do. The collision of city and rural cultures is palpable. The religious subtext is touched on with care. The acting and script is natural and believable when taken in the context of the situation and counseling standpoint. Instead of gritty, hard core, raw movie, this is a great movie that makes its point with naturalism and almost a breezy, entertaining perspective without glossing over the serious nature of its topic. The issues of trust, communication, betrayal, and values are all well presented. Nine out of Ten Stars.
