Oscar buzz already surrounds Renée Zellweger’s heartfelt performance as the legendary Judy Garland in this earnest biopic based on Peter Quilter’s Broadway play End of the Rainbow.
Similar to the recent Stan & Ollie, Judy finds the star later in life, arriving in London in 1968 to perform a five-week sold-out run of shows while struggling with substance abuse and financial and legal woes. Although focusing on the last year of Garland’s life and her decline, it’s not all tragedy; Judy is liberally seasoned with flashbacks to her Hollywood heyday – including a set visit to The Wizard of Oz – and scored to some her best-known songs, marvellously performed by Zellweger.
