  1. Directed by Ulu Grosbard, who has never done a better job of filling the screen with superb acting, and shows great ingenuity at interweaving music with other aspects of the story.
  2. Georgia, written with rare honesty and economy by Leigh's mother, Barbara Turner, and very sensitively directed by Ulu Grosbard, is a tough-minded look at show business and families. [10 Jan 1996]
  3. It's a rich, engrossing ensemble drama that reveals itself very slowly, is filled with multidimensional characters and multi-layered performances, and works toward an amazingly verisimilitude. [19 Jan 1996]

    On the one hand, Georgia is extremely painful; on the other, there's joy in the enterprise. [12 Dec 1995]
  5. Quirky and nuanced, this movie has a lot to say about sibling rivalry and the current music scene.

    Written with an acute ear by Barbara Turner (Leigh's mother) and directed by Ulu Grosbard, it's a resonant, grittily specific film.

    It's a startling, exhausting spectacle - and, like the rest of Leigh's performance, very, very bad.
