Renée Zellweger (Bridget Jones’s Diary) won a 2020 Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for her stellar performance as Judy Garland in the biographical drama Judy. Adapted from the Olivier- and Tony-nominated West End and Broadway play End of the Rainbow, the film was also nominated for an Oscar for the makeup and hairstyling that transformed Zellweger into the late silver screen legend still best remembered for her roles in The Wizard of Oz and A Star is Born.
Incorporating flashbacks to Garland’s teenage years, the story traces the final year of the actress’s life as she arrives in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts.
Emmy nominees Rufus Sewell (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Victoria, The Man in the High Castle), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story, Ratched), and Sir Michael Gambon (Gosford Park, Albus Dumbledore in six of the Harry Potter films) co-star, alongside BAFTA nominee Jessie Buckley (Fargo, Chernobyl).
Judy has an 82% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Rolling Stone saying, “Renée Zellweger performs miracles playing Judy Garland: singing her heart out, baring her bruised soul and acting with a ferocity that ultimately rises to a state of grace.”
