Georgia delves into the relationship between sisters Georgia (Mare Winningham) and Sadie (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Georgia is a successful folk singer/songwriter, while Sadie is a drug-addicted rock star wannabe. Sadie has long had a complicated relationship with Georgia. The love between the sisters is obvious, but Sadie's deep-seated insecurities and jealousies have driven a wedge between the siblings. Georgia's settled family life is in stark contrast to the tumultuous existence led by her sister, further fueling Sadie's obsessive jealousy. Sadie tries to follow her sister into music, but lacks the talent Georgia has in abundance. Sadie's life spirals out of control, and the deeply troubled younger sister must find her rock bottom before the sisters' relationship can be repaired. Georgia was written by Jennifer Jason Leigh's mother, Barbara Turner, and was co-produced by Leigh and Turner. Leigh's longtime friend, Mare Winningham, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance.
