Renée Zellweger is magnetic as Judy Garland depicted in the final years of her life

It’s 1969 and the showbiz legend is in Swinging London to perform a five-week, sold-out run at The Talk of the Town.

It’s thirty years since she’d first shot to fame in The Wizard of Oz, and the film sees her forced into a painful decision. She must leave behind her son and daughter and travel to London for the concerts so that she can earn enough money to buy a house and ensure she won’t lose custody of the children.

Despite some battles with management, her wit and warmth shine through and even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.
