Goofs

In the "morning scene" after Rachel and her grandmother has had breakfast the shops are opening and one of the shopkeepers puts the "open" sign up facing inwards, the sign should have said "closed" when seen from that side of the door if the shop was open for business. See more »

A dramatic picture into the different the sides of family life and trust.
31 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Lindsay Lohan presented a different character approach where she played an amatory teen raised in California and sent to live with her pious grandmother for the sake of her redemption. This movie not only enhances the struggles between drinking and growing up too fast, but it shows the love in a family. This movie would play mind games with you which would inspire you to love each character. Felicity Huffman, played Lindsay Lohan's distressed mother and slowly throughout the movie it is seen how closely alike they are. Georgia Rule was a new take on movies and if you are in for a new turn of adventure and occasional comedy kicks, Georgia Rule is it.
