Judy, with Renée Zellweger

Monday Dec 16, 2019 7:30 PM

What becomes a legend most? In this case, a soaring homage by a brilliant actor delivering her best performance in years. Renée Zellweger never mimics Judy Garland in this adaptation of the stage play End of the Rainbow, rather she channels the collected rage and passion of a child prodigy whose life has always been shaped by the men around her, but whose talent is hers alone. At turns heartbreaking and exuberant, Judy is at its most powerful with Zellweger on stage, spotlighted and singing her heart out for all the love and loves lost in the too-short life of Ms. Judy Garland. 

Judy. 2019. USA. Directed by Rupert Goold. With Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock. 118 min.
