Georgia Rule

Georgia Rule ★½ 2007 (R)

Generally misbegotten female family saga from director Marshall takes a decided turn into the unpleasant. Rebellious troubled teen Rachel (Lohan) finally screws up so badly that her alcoholic mom Lily (Huffman) sends her off for a summer of tough love at her own estranged mother Georgia's (Fonda) smalltown home in Idaho Mormon territory. Rachel proceeds to be both outrageous and obnoxious, casually revealing that she's been molested by stepdad Arnold (Elwes), although she's such a liar no one knows what to believe. Then Lily shows up, also seeking a safe haven and adding to the family tension. Yes, this is the film where Lohan's own outrageous and obnoxious behavior drew public reprimands from the producer and others. 113m/C DVD . US Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan, Felicity Huffman, Dermot Mulroney, Cary Elwes, Garrett Hedlund, Laurie Metcalf, Hector Elizondo; D: Garry Marshall; W: Mark Andrus; C: Karl Walter Lindenlaub; M: John Debney.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
