Synopsis:
Winter 1968, and showbiz legend 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. 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 romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock), her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy (Renée Zellweger) is fragile.
After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted: haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood, and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Will she have the strength to go on? Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer".

Renee can get the dress size to suit! - Judy review by NC

Spoiler Alert
09/02/2020

Amazing slim down by Renee. Looks a lot like the diva as well, but never really get into empathy with the failing Judy. Most of the pouty thing is basic Renee.......expect Hugh Grant to appear at any moment!

Hollywood has a thing about doing the dress and body change thing to get recognised/oscarable film. Bale as Chaney in Vice..........weight the other way, very clever, but, unless a US politics follower, a bit boring.....except for Rockwell stealing it as Bush............

Over the Rainbow - Judy review by JD

Spoiler Alert
13/02/2020

Was captivated by this very well produced movie.

Judy Garland was never my favourite diva, but Renee Zellweger is excellent with her portrait  of the fading star.

 Certainly deserved her recent Oscar.

Supporting cast are also very good, with the lovely Jessie Buckley a stand out.

1960’s London and the Talk of the Town feature as interesting locations and the music ( and Renee’s singing ) are excellent.

Well worth a look.

Worth watching for Rene Z, but not the film for me.... worrying to see how Judy was treated as a child
