ODEON says...
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, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy 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. 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".

A really powerful and moving film, well worth seeing. Renee Zellwegger was very good in the lead but also special mention to Jessie Buckley. Recommended.

Not that good

Reviewer: Mal criticDate: 2019-10-21

After hearing reviews on tv I thought this film was going to be great unfortunately it did not deliver. Renee Zellweger was quite good but being a Judy Garland fan I just couldn't get used to her. Overall the film has been overpraised.

Well worth a viewing. RZ as Judy Garland puts in a cracking performance. There were times I swear I was watching Judy and not Renee. Really tragic what she endured for the sake of showbiz.
