IMDB Rating - 6.8

"This is Renée Zellweger’s Judy. It doesn’t belong to Rupert Goold, its director. Nor does it belong to Tom Edge, its screenwriter. It’s a performance of such overwhelming force that it wrests authorship from every other hand that guided the film’s creation. Zellweger is magnetic as Judy Garland, depicted in the final years of her life. What may be missing in Edge’s screenplay (which is refined but unadventurous), we read a thousand times over in the actor’s face – whether in a pained, but eager smile or the wild look of a lost child"
