JUDY

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

 

Dir Rupert Goold  UK 2019  118 mins  Cert 12A

 

Renée Zellweger is phenomenally good in this captivating account of Judy Garland’s final London concert run. The film takes up the story of showbiz legend in the winter of 1968 when Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-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.  Yet Judy is fragile and haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and longing to be back home with her kids.  Will she have the strength to go on? Also stars Rufus Sewell and Michael Gambon.
