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".

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.

Really gets to the heart of why Judy was such a mess. This is a really good movie and Rene deserves her recent Oscar for this role. Loved revisiting the Talk of the Town as I remembered my visit their in years past! Well worth a watch.

A great movie - Judy review by IM

Spoiler Alert

This was an interesting movie , first class acting and singing by Renée Zellweger, the Oscar was well deserved. Direction and editing were superb and the story was well told with a steady pace that kept us involved. It is worth mentioning that the sound track was also as good as it gets. It is one of the best films of it's genre.
