Thirty years after starring in “The Wizard of Oz,” and desperate for money, Judy Garland arrives in London in 1968 to perform sold-out shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub. While there, she reminisces with friends and fans and begins a whirlwind romance with musician Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.
“This is Renée Zellweger’s Judy. It’s a performance of such overwhelming force that it wrests authorship from every other hand that guided the film’s creation. Zellweger is magnetic…..it’s the performance of a lifetime” (The Independent)
