Overview

Don your finest embellished pantsuit and join us somewhere over the rainbow for the most talked-about biopic of the year. It’s the winter of 1968 and showbiz icon Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) has just touched down in London to perform a five-week, sold-out run of live performances at The Talk of the Town. Caught between a custody battle with her ex-husband Sidney Luft (Rufus Sewell) and a whirlwind nascent romance with Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock) – her soon-to-be fifth husband – Judy prepares for her shows while grappling with vocal trouble, impatient audiences and the long shadow cast by her own legendary career. Battling with management, reminiscing with friends, connecting with daughter Liza Minnelli (Gemma-Leah Devereux) and enchanting her loyal fans, Judy must rely on her burnished wit and eternal warmth to make it through one of the most tumultuous periods of her career.

"Renee Zellweger gives the performance of a lifetime ... her Garland encompasses the pain of every woman who’s been crushed under the heel of society’s demands"
— The Independent
"Zellweger knocks it out of the park, lighting up this punchy and moving late-life biopic with big-hearted, big-voiced panache"
— Total Film
"Zellweger is phenomenally good. [She] and Garland coexist symbiotically on the screen, in a kind of magic-eye illusion of a performance that flips back and forwards between the two"
— The Observer

Why You Should See This Film

A gargantuan star vehicle if ever there was one, it’s a small miracle that the profusely talented Zellweger manages to inhabit Judy Garland so completely. But it’s also little surprise, given her much-proven chops as a seasoned triple-threat. Imbuing her portrayal with her own experiences of Hollywood’s myriad double standards (and double-edged swords), Zellweger crafts a bittersweet turn that soars beyond imitation into its own realm of otherworldly conjuring. There’s certainly no need to book a visit to the Wizard of Oz to witness this magical marvel of a performance.
