GEORGIA
1995, Park Circus/Miramax, 117 min, Dir: Ulu Grosbard

Jennifer Jason Leigh pushes her remarkable ability to embody tormented, self-abusive characters to its furthest extremes here, starring as Sadie, a desperately untalented singer struggling in the shadows of her sister Georgia (Mare Winningham), a much-loved folk musician. Written by Leigh’s mother, Barbara Turner, and co-produced by Leigh herself, GEORGIA is an emotionally-naked portrait of a performer struggling to be heard when almost no one cares to listen.
