Judy (2019)

Judy Garland will always be remembered for her classic role in The Wizard of Oz, however, her story only starts there. Her struggles throughout life led to a tragic and unrelenting lifestyle that is catalogued in this love letter to her memory.

Renée Zellweger plays Judy in the final months of life as she sets out on what is to be one of her final tours. A great performance by Renée is almost lost to the rapid and confusing timeline. Perhaps this was designed to reflect her unpredictable actions and self-medicated state of mind.
