JUDY – 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.
Q-tips say: See it but be prepared that is not just fun and a feel good movie. Some is a little sad but good. Judy … is happy to let [Renée] Zellweger take centre stage. Thank god, because it’s the performance of a lifetime. Enjoy!
