Movie Info

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. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. 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."

Garland's life is so inherently emotional and Zellweger's performance is so appreciably raw, that Judy manages to wring pathos by the end.

January 28, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Judy, a musical drama, is both a warm and loving tribute to the actor and singer Judy Garland as well as a cautionary tale about the pressures and impact of celebrity.

This is a movie that showcases Zellweger's considerable talents, and for that alone, Judy is worth the price of entry.

October 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Garland must have been exasperating to work with, but Zellweger's performance goes right to the heart of what made her a superstar.

Judy ... is happy to let [Renée] Zellweger take centre stage. Thank god, because it's the performance of a lifetime.

October 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5

Zellweger hasn't quite lost her off-putting propensity for straining for effect by scrunching up her face and squinting into the distance. Nonetheless, it's a remarkable performance.
