An amazing performance from Renée Zellweger anchors this assured and moving biopic of one of the greatest and most tragically flawed of Hollywood superstars. In the winter of 1968, showbiz legend Judy Garland (Zellweger) arrived in London to perform a five-week, sold-out run at the West End’s The Talk of the Town. As she rehearses for her show, argues with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Meanwhile her dreams of love are undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans. Featuring some of her best-known songs, Judy celebrates one of the world’s greatest entertainers.
Contains scenes of drug misuse and infrequent strong language.
