“Judy”: Film Review & Podcast

Posted: October 3rd, 2019 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

Playing a renowned figure on the screen is always dicey, because we the public know the person’s physical ticks, mannerisms, and at least their public personality.

Which is why, I suppose, when the actor gets it right, or close, they have a good chance to be in the hunt come award time.

Count Renée Zellweger in.

She is the ever beloved since childhood Judy Garland in “Judy.” The film is set in the last year of Garland’s life when decades of insecurity, lack of sleep, alcohol and pills have worn her down.

She’s off to London, where she remains a big star.

“Judy” is a sad film. Yet it’s compelling in that way we can’t take our eyes off our icons as they self destruct before our eyes.

For more details on the film and Zellweger’s performance, listen to the podcast below.
