What we think

Judy settles for sad crowd-pleaser, but it never dares to be as bleak as the truth.

What others think

The film sugarcoats Garland’s physical deterioration, her addictions, her wretchedness and her mortality. However, paradoxically, it’s the most relaxed and personal performance we have seen from Zellweger in a while.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
[A] considered, carefully focused film which hones in on a relatively low-key, albeit representative and dramatically rich segment of Garland’s later career.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
Without Zellweger, the result might have been a trudge, or an embarrassing mess, but her performance fills it to the brim with nuance and narrative purpose, and if that’s not enough, she sings that huge, heartbreaking repertoire with all the knobs turned up to 11.
Lisa Mullen Sight & Sound
It’s a familiar story that “Judy” struggles to freshen up, at least until Zellweger takes the mic.
