Renee Zellweger portrays legendary entertainer Judy Garland, performing in London for the last time.

“With a jaw-dropping performance from Renée Zellweger…the film is funny, warm and satisfyingly self-aware“ Sight & Sound

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland 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”.

Also starring Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell and Michael Gambon.

“Renée Zellweger gives us a heartfelt, studied portrayal of Garland“ Guardian
