Movie: Judy (2019) 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.

I don't want to dismiss the hard work that Zellwegger put into playing a version of Judy Garland, but I do want to dismiss the script entirely. Judy takes the most boring, trite and overused direction that it possibly can at every single opportunity. Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product.
