Brilliant.
27 October 2002 | by campbell2See all my reviews

Judy Davis returns to the Australian screen in an almighty role. She plays insurance investigator, Nina Bailey and her mother, Georgia White. After a recent photo gallery presentation at an Art Gallery of Georgia's work, Nina becomes suspicious of her mother's sudden death.

Davis leads an all star Australian cast, strongly supported by a solid plot and well written story. Georgia is another Australian classic.
