All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • Seldom in a biographical television made-for does a star so expertly inhabit another's skin as Judy Davis does here with Judy Garland.

  • Judy Davis picks up the role as a young woman (about a quarter of the way in) and delivers a Garland that is both authentic and vibrantly real.

Audience Reviews for Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows

  • Jan 29, 2011
    Though it won critical accolades and multiple television awards, this film is truly awful. Most notably, the story doesn't have a discernible structure; Garland's life starts low, then goes up, then down, then up, then I don't even know. It's a roller coaster ride that loops every fifteen minutes, and the film needs a guiding hand to help us understand the significance of what we're watching. Indeed, though the film presents these characters honestly, I don't understand what the filmmakers are saying about these people. Why is their story significant? What can we learn from them? How can these particulars become universal? There is shallow attempt at such a theme in the film's last line, but this comes off as abstract moralizing and is too late to give the film any skeleton. Judy Davis does what contemporary Judy Davis does best: scream and carry on. She doesn't sing, allowing lip synching and some guy backstage with a boombox to do all the work. Overall, this film ends up being moralistic bullshit, and we have to navigate mountains of pointlessness to get there.

    Wonderful performances from Judy Davis and Tammy Blanchard as older and young Judy make this compelling if sad viewing.

    I liked it, but I like anything with and/or about Judy Garland.

    Judy Davis makes an absolutely performance as an extraordinary portrayal of famed singer Judy Garland in this brilliant Hollywood biographic film based on the book by Judy's daughter Lorna Luft.
