Judy

2019 ‧ 118 min ‧ PG-13 ‧ CC, DVS


It’s winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in swinging London to perform a five-week, sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
Going beyond predictable
tragic-diva tropes, Zellweger invests Garland with her own ferocity and focus, to the point where the technical commitment and strenuous physicality of the performance becomes one with the character’s own extraordinary
grit and courage
