Story


Three generations of top actresses unite in a film from director Garry Marshall ("Beaches," "Pretty Woman," "Runaway Bride") about the power of redemption, freedom in forgiveness and unbreakable bonds of motherhood--"Georgia Rule."

Rebellious teenager Rachel (Lohan) screams, swears, drinks and is--in a word--uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in mom Lily's (Golden Globe winner Huffman) San Francisco home. With nowhere else to take the impulsive and rambunctious girl, Lily hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she'd never return...her own mother's Idaho farm.

Matriarch Georgia (two-time Oscar winner Fonda) is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding anyone who shares her home do the same--God comes first and hard work comes a very close second. Now saddled with raising the young woman, it will require each patient breath she takes to understand Rachel's fury.

But as Rachel succumbs to her summer of misery and shakes up the tiny Mormon town, Georgia notices something is changing within her granddaughter. Given structure and responsibilities, Rachel is letting her guard down and learning compassion...especially for her mother. Her journey will lead all three women to revelations of buried family secrets and an understanding that--regardless what happens--the ties that bind can never be broken.
