We'll let you know when this movie is showing again in London.
Grappling with addiction, several failed marriages, and career stagnation, Judy Garland travels from Los Angeles to London for a series of sell out shows, hoping they will grant her the necessary finances to take care of her family.
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.
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.
