Three generations of top actresses unite in Garry Marshall's "Georgia Rule" about the power of redemption, freedom in forgiveness and the unbreakable bonds of motherhood-Georgia Rule. And in this family, attitude doesn't skip a generation. Rebellious teenager Rachel (Lindsay Lohan, "Mean Girls," "A Prairie Home Companion") screams, swears, drinks, says whatever is on her mind and is just generally uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in mom Lilly's (Golden Globe winner Felicity Huffman, "Transamerica," television's "Desperate Housewives") San Francisco home. With nowhere else to take the impulsive and rambunctious girl, Lilly hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she'd never return...her own mother's Idaho home.

Matriarch Georgia (two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda, "Monster-in-Law," "9 to 5") is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding that anyone she invites into her home do the same-God comes first and hard work a very close second. Now saddled with raising the young woman, it will require each patient breath she takes to understand the reasons behind Rachel's fury.

But as Rachel succumbs to her summer of misery and starts to shake up the tiny town, Georgia notices something is changing within her granddaughter. Given structure and responsibilities, she is letting her guard down and learning compassion...especially for her own mother. Her journey will lead all three women to revelations of buried secrets and an understanding that, no matter what happens, the family ties that bind them will never be broken.

Joining the accomplished actresses in "Georgia Rule" are Dermot Mulroney ("The Family Stone," "The Wedding Date") as Lilly's old flame, Simon; Cary Elwes ("Saw," "The Princess Bride") as Lilly's husband and Rachel's stepfather, Arnold; and Garrett Hedlund ("Four Brothers," "Friday Night Lights") as the simple country boy who catches Rachel's eye, Harlan.

The creative team bringing "Georgia Rule" to the screen includes frequent Marshall collaborators: cinematographer Karl Walter Lindenlaub ("The Princess Diaries," "Maid in Manhattan"); editors Bruce Green ("Runaway Bride," "Just Like Heaven") and Tara Timpone ("Raising Helen," "Blonde Ambition"); production designer Albert Brenner ("Beaches," "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement"); costume designer Gary Jones ("Raising Helen," "Spider-Man 2"); and composer John Debney ("The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement," "Evan Almighty").

"Georgia Rule" is written by Mark Andrus ("Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," "As Good as It Gets") and produced by James G. Robinson ("The Good Shepherd," "Man of the Year") and David Robinson ("The Good Shepherd," "Two For the Money"). The executive producers for "Georgia Rule" are Guy McElwaine ("The Good Shepherd"), Michael Besman ("About Schmidt") and Kevin Reidy ("Ever After").
