This biopic looks at the final years of one of Hollywood’s most admired stars. Far from her cheerful and picture-perfect image, this film explores the hardships Judy Garland faced largely as a result of her fame as a child actor and traumatic early life. Set in London, where the star resided during a series of sold-out concerts undertaken to financially provide for her two children, Judy ceases to let her spark go as she meets her future fifth husband Mickey Deans and delivers chilling performances on stage. Yet the film does not ignore her battles with depression, substance abuse and the pressure of fame, all which took a devastating toll on her well-being. This is a touching drama on what made the actor such an enigmatic performer that also touches on her important role as an icon to many outsiders and the LGBTQ+ community.
