Internet Movie Database          Movie Reviews

A biopic about Judy Garland toward the end of her life, when she did a five week show in London.

Renee Zellweger was amazingly good as the older, addicted, broke Garland; her performance was excellent. The film shows Garlands current life (two kids, four divorces, so broke she has to leave the kids with an ex and go to London to do a show and make some money, which is this movie). There are many flashbacks to her earlier life, all well done, and the ending is upbeat, although she died less than a year later.

This is a really thoughtful and interesting look at one of Hollywood’s iconic stars.
