Will Judy bring Renée Zellweger the Oscar glory she seeks? After so many delays, walls in just over 6 weeks time we’ll find out. When it comes to the Hollywood icon Judy Garland we all hark back to the young Judy’s Wizard Of Oz and the years just after the classic film. Rarely do we see her final days and Rupert Goold‘s film will show those days.
Pathe UK have sent us 4 new images from the film, check them out below…
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-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 romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.
Judy also stars Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon. The film is set for a UK nationwide theatrical release on 2nd October 2019.
