Georgy Girl

1966, NR, 100 min. Directed by Silvio Narissano. Starring James Mason, Alan Bates, Lynn Redgrave, Charlotte Rampling.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., July 13, 2000

You know the song, now discover the movie. This British movie is very much a product of its times. Lynn Redgrave has the role of her lifetime as an ugly duckling who lacks self-worth. Her bitchy roommate, however, has it in spades as she hogs the bedroom, gets pregnant, and marries the wrong man.
