Georgy Girl 11/20/18

Powerhouse Indicator

Lynn Redgrave burst to stardom with this fine study of romance vs. reality in swinging London circa 1966. Georgy thinks of herself as a plain Jane next to her popular roommate, played by Charlotte Rampling. Alan Bates is the flighty boyfriend and James Mason the old millionaire making Georgy indecent proposals. How can a good girl get somewhere in life? As sometimes happens, the song has retained more fame than the movie. On Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
