Diana Sands stars in the provocative romantic drama Georgia, Georgia. While performing in Sweden, black singer Georgia (Diana Sands) falls in love with white photographer Michael Winters (Dirk Benedict). The issue of miscegenation weighs heavily upon the proceedings, though it is Georgia's black travelling companion Alberta (Minnie Gentry), rather than Michael's white friends, who is most upset by the interracial relationship. Alberta despises all whites with a vengeance, and it is her hatred that formulates the film's explosive climax. Scripted by Maya Angelou, Georgia, Georgia can't help but seem dated when shown today; its principal virtues are Sands's performance and Andreas Ballas's cinematography.
