The first thing we noticed about this film was to find Jane Fonda play a role completely out of character. Known for generations as a metropolitan, liberal activist, in her role as "Georgia" she plays a heartland-based, extremely conservative grandmother!
The plot is simple and direct. It's about three generations of women, played by Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman who come together in a film that explores the relationships between mothers and daughters. If it was billed as a black comedy, it was done so to smooth over its real goal, which was to tackle complicated and serious issues facing women in the 21st century.

When Lily (Huffman) can no longer handle her rebellious teenage daughter, Rachel (Lohan) she takes her to the one place she swore she'd never return - her mother's house. For one very surprising summer, these very different women are living under one roof and one rule: Georgia's (Fonda).
The EyeWonder Georgia Rule banner expands into a beautifully designed, self contained unit. Rich in video, it links include two movie clips and two trailers. Rounding out the banner is a gallery of great photos and downloads. It mirrors the film's powerful story.
Diving into the site, the EyeWonder ad complements a variety of other things which illuminate the look and feel of the film. You'll find the synopsis, bonus features, order the DVD and more. The deeper you go, there's more information about the cast and crew, the production, more video, downloads and photos. It has numerous photos that bring out the beautiful western landscape!
According to one IMDB viewer, Georgia Rule is no laughing matter, but it is a powerful, worthwhile movie with an outstanding cast. The opening is a little slow but it accurately portrays the strained relationships and secrets in this family. Fonda and Huffman are brilliant and so is Lohan. Given the press surrounding Lohan during the filming, my expectations were pretty low and I was very surprised at how good she was and how good the movie was.
Director Garry Marshall did a good job at handling a heavy subject. There are a couple of laughs along the way for comedy relief, but this is a movie that will stay with you.
