Fewer than 30 minutes on the bank of America’s second-largest river, the Savannah, will take you past a mud-baked dock and a blue pickup with a pile of firewood in the back. Some cars drive off the sloping land, but leaving the dock, the river is only a few yards away.

A newcomer to the screen, 23-year-old Antonia Gentry plays Georgia's teenage daughter Ginny (don't call her Virginia). Ginny is smart, strong-willed, and deeply knowledgeable of languages and pop culture references from the early aughts, but her unstable home life has made it hard to make friends. Like any outspoken high schooler, Ginny initially dreads their move to Wellsbury — a very white, very wealthy New England town. It's never easy being the new kid in town, especially when Ginny realizes she's one of six Black kids in the whole school. Enter Maxine and Marcus, the twins across the street who turn Ginny's world upside down. (Source: www.teenvogue.com)

Ginny

Yet, Ginny and Georgia are a very different mother-daughter duo. For starters, the recently widowed Georgia is a crafty con woman who's harboring a few big secrets, like, say, embezzlement and potential manslaughter. Not to mention, she prefers hard alcohol to coffee. Meanwhile, Ginny struggles to fit in, not because of her cleverness but due to how her biracial identity makes her feel like an outsider. (Her oft-absent father is Black.) She's far more self-aware than Rory Gilmore could ever be.
