Pleasantly surprised by Surviving Georgia and its humor and warmth.
1 July 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw a screening of Surviving Georgia recently and even though the film is yet to be released and as the directors announced on the night 'was still in post production' I was surprised and totally impressed by this new Australian feature film. This film knows it's market place. The female audiences will love it but I think so will the men. Shane Jacobson and the Spencer McLaren character are so well written and performed, men will really enjoy them.

The ensemble cast of Shane Jacobson playing a mountain cop who falls for Holly Valance was brilliantly written by Sandra Sciberras who had previously written and directed The Caterpillar Wish. Quite different but equally as warm when it comes to ensemble, romantic writing. The Pia Miranda storyline with her over bearing mother Georgia played exceptionally well by Caroline O'Conner had great spirit. Comedy and Heart...you can't go wrong.

Look beyond the pink and you can clearly see Sciberras and Co-Director Kate Whitbread knew exactly what they were doing when they embarked on making this film. If you don't, then this genre is simply not for you. There is a lot of heart and a lot of comedy. It's very funny and very moving in parts. This is a great script, a great bunch of Aussie actors, a beautiful setting and sensitive direction.
