Anchored by a note-perfect performance from Renée Zellweger, this heart-rending adaptation of Peter Quilter's stage play “End of the Rainbowpresents an intimate portrait of the great Judy Garland in the final year of her life.

Judy was raised on film sets and nearly every aspect of her life — from what she could eat to who she could date to what drugs she should take — was dictated by MGM studio head Louis B. Mayer. She became a wondrously gifted movie star who never learned to take care of herself.

As Judy begins, Garlandis now middle-aged, homeless, broke, embroiled in a custody battle, and all but blacklisted in Hollywood. In a bid to regain some control of her career, she accepts a residency at a London theatre. She refuses to rehearse and, crippled by anxiety, insomnia, and alcoholism, can barely make it to the stage opening night. But once there, in the spotlight, before an eager audience, microphone in hand and a crackerjack band at the ready, she's suddenly at home. And it's magic.

Directed by Rupert Goold, Judy tracks those rollercoaster months in England, the onstage triumphs and catastrophes, the whirlwind marriage to the opportunistic Mickey Deans, and the touching friendship with a gay couple who adore her.

Despite her bad behaviour, Judy, haunted by fears that her talent will abandon her any moment, is regarded with tremendous sympathy, and Zellweger captures Judy's pain and impossible charisma with equal aplomb.
