Georgia is a 1988 Australian drama film directed by Ben Lewin and starring Judy Davis, John Bach, and Julia Blake. The movie follows the story of Georgia White (Judy Davis), an eccentric and talented singer/songwriter struggling to find her place in the music industry. When her estranged sister, Sadie (Julia Blake), comes back into her life, Georgia's life is turned upside down as the two sisters try to mend their relationship while dealing with their own personal issues.

The film explores themes of family, love, and self-discovery, as well as the struggle for artistic recognition and acceptance. Georgia's character is a fascinating study in contradictions; on the one hand, she is confident and charismatic, with a powerful voice that draws people to her. On the other hand, she is emotionally vulnerable and prone to self-doubt, especially when it comes to her relationship with her sister.

Throughout the film, we see Georgia trying to navigate the tricky waters of the music industry, as well as her own complicated relationships with the people around her. She forms a close bond with her manager, Michael (John Bach), who shares her passion for music and helps her find gigs and record her songs. But even Michael can't protect her from the harsh realities of the industry, and Georgia is forced to confront the fact that success may not come easy.

As Georgia and Sadie try to repair their relationship, we learn more about the complex dynamics between the two sisters. Sadie is jealous of Georgia's talent and beauty, while Georgia resents Sadie for abandoning her when she needed her most. But as they begin to open up to each other, we see that there is a deep bond between the two women that goes beyond their past grievances.

The film is beautifully shot, with lush Australian landscapes serving as a backdrop for Georgia's emotional journey. But it is the acting that truly stands out. Judy Davis gives a powerhouse performance as Georgia, conveying both her strength and vulnerability with equal skill. John Bach is also impressive as Michael, playing the role with a quiet intensity that belies his easy charm.

Overall, Georgia is a powerful and moving film that explores the complexities of family, love, and artistic ambition. It is a must-see for any fan of Judy Davis or Australian cinema.
