Movie Info

In this revelatory new biography, we learn the details of Garland's troubles through the memories of the one man who, for a tumultuous decade, was her confidant, manager and, not incidentally, third husband: Sid Luft. Through Luft's observations, only recently made public, and Garland's own words emerges a poignant portrait of a woman whose vulnerabilities were exploited by an industry she helped build, but whose resilience, entrepreneurship and unfailing commitment to her creative gifts kept her fighting. SID & JUDY reminds us why Garland has remained a beacon of perseverance and joy for LGBTQ+ generations and her fans worldwide.
