Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) 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, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.” With Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon, Rufus Sewell.

“Renée Zellweger is phenomenally good in this captivating account of Judy Garland’s final London concert run.” (The Guardian)

“Renée Zellweger may not be Judy Garland, but she reminds us that technical perfection is no match for emotional truth.” (NPR)

“Renée Zellweger performs miracles playing Judy Garland: singing her heart out, baring her bruised soul and acting with a ferocity that ultimately rises to a state of grace.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“Renée Zellweger wasn’t the obvious choice to play the late Judy Garland, the joyful Wizard of Oz ingénue turned adult captive of addiction and anxiety, but she makes it seem like there’s no place like her home.” (Toronto Star)

“This is one of those solo turns where the star performance matters more than the story, and Renee Zellweger, playing the legendary singer Judy Garland in her sad last months – broke, anxious, drunk, rueful, but still in it – gives it everything she’s got.” (Globe & Mail)
