Renée Zellweger (Bridget Jones’ Diary, Cold Mountain) gives a vividly alive and captivating performance in this late career portrait set in the twilight of the career of Judy Garland. Broke and homeless, she travels to London for a five week nightclub engagement. Fragile but still a powerful performer, she battles with management, charms the musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans. Directed by Rupert Goold (True Story) who runs a London theatre, and based on Peter Quilter’s 2005 stage play and co-starring Michael Gambon (Dumbledore in Harry Potter) and Jesse Buckley (Wild Rose) this film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of the world’s greatest entertainer.
