After The Silence of the Lambs (1991) became a resounding success in 1991, Ted Levine, who played a serial killer in the film, became typecast as a villain by casting directors. It was Jennifer Jason Leigh who convinced the director of this film that he could portray a stay-at-home dad supporting his wife. Levine says he is now forever grateful for Leigh's belief in his versatility. See more »

Usually I like films that are good character studies, but Georgia fell flat as a character study. At almost two and a half hours long, the film grew dull and too long very quickly. I have the highest regard for Jennifer Jason Leigh's work as an actress/writer/producer, but I can only hope that her real singing is much better in real life than in this movie! It's just that Leigh's Sadie is an unlikeable, unsympathetic character, and her and Georgia's sibling rivalry is not gone into nearly enough detail to MAKE Sadie a sympathetic character. Mare Winningham does a very good job, and the woman has some beautiful pipes! Who knew? An OK film, but with the talented Leigh at the helm, it should have been MUCH better.
