JUDY

Renée Zellweger plays Judy Garland in this 2019 biographical study, and plays her at a particular time in the singer’s life: the late 1960s, when Garland was filming a series of London stage shows as a late-career comeback. Probably to avoid either rights fees or lawsuits, or both, there’s little in this film about Liza Minnelli (though her siblings are included) – but Zellweger’s central performance, in the title role, is indeed something to see. And hear, because the former Chicago star is indeed providing the singing voice here for Judy Garland, including at scenes filmed and recorded, as they say, before a live audience.
