“Renée Zellweger gives a tour-de-force performance as Hollywood legend Judy Garland in this knockout triumph geared around the star's notorious engagement at London's Talk of the Town nightclub, just six months before her tragic death in 1969. Jessie Buckley plays no-nonsense production assistant Rosalyn Wilder, who is assigned to keep Garland off the pills and booze as she battles for custody of her children and marries a fifth unsuitable husband... With flashbacks to Garland's experiences making The Wizard of Oz and Babes in Arms, and a very moving sidebar into her devoted gay following, Judy often makes for wrenching viewing, but it's also too gripping to turn away from. Zellweger sings the classic Garland songbook with such astounding accuracy there won't be a dry eye in the house come the sensational Over the Rainbow finale.” - Alan Jones, Radio Times
