...A sobering portrayal of a star on the decline and an insight into the toll sexism, sexual abuse and the celebrity machine can have on someone's mental health.
January 17, 2020
Renée Zellweger does an absolutely incredible job, not only of performing these iconic musical numbers, but of portraying a woman teetering on the brink of complete physical, mental, psychological collapse.
January 15, 2020
[Renee Zellweger] plays the late actress-singer-dancer Judy Garland with poise, elegance and show-stopping vocals.
January 13, 2020
A Golden Globe-winning performance from Renée Zellweger as the titular star avoids wallowing in despair, but still manages to convey the very real misery of the embattled entertainer.
January 10, 2020
Judy is probably the first real film of 2019 that screams Oscar and it's all Renée Zellweger. This is one of the must-see performances of the year period.
January 9, 2020
Renee Zellweger is stunning. She does all of her own singing and performing but also finds who she was as a person that loved her children and fans.
January 6, 2020
The movie is a vehicle for Zellweger's performance. It's hard to escape the sense, of course, that her turn here is an award-bait stunt... But it's a disciplined and rigorous stunt.
December 26, 2019
Zellweger has one of the most memorable roles of her career playing the adult Garland.
December 11, 2019
Being back with Judy-even if it isn't the "real" Judy- is like coming back home from a long, exhausting trip. It's a reminder that there's no place like home, and no one like Garland.
November 29, 2019
Like Garland's career, "Judy" is blessed with a talented star and starts out with much promise, only to become more uneven and unfulfilling towards its end.
November 27, 2019
We are given a window into the final months of one of Hollywood's greatest stars and one of its greatest victims, as well. Hollywood has always preyed on the weak, children and women, especially. Judy was both.
November 26, 2019
Standard-issue biopic made more watchable by the passionate and vulnerable performance by Renée Zellweger.
November 10, 2019
Hail Mary. Full of grace. And now, Hail Judy. Full of pharmaceuticals. Propelled by perpetual sorrow, the archetype carries on in Rupert Goold's lavish take on Judy Garland's finale
November 10, 2019
It's a period in her career that few are aware of, and a poignant coda to a life which has since become the quintessential cautionary tale of a former child star.
November 6, 2019
Judy broke me. Wonder, joy, melancholy and hope, these are the words that describe Renée's stupendously charming performance and the film as a whole.
November 5, 2019
An immaculate acting display that ensures we see Garland as a real human, and not just the diva she could have been portrayed as.
November 1, 2019
The result is a moving study of a talented performer who never found the love she so clearly craved.
October 29, 2019
Renée Zellweger gives a knockout performance as a beleaguered Judy Garland in the last months of her life in this dramatic and affecting musical biopic. Zellweger also sings Garland's songs with dramatic flair.
October 24, 2019
Judy is by no means a perfect film... but it does attempt, and achieves with some success, to colour the increasing output of biopics with a different shade of the queer rainbow.
October 22, 2019
She's quite the tragic figure, elegantly portrayed by Zellwegger, who shines even brighter during the singing scenes. [Full review in Spanish]
