There are actresses in Hollywood that have elevated from movie star to icon with Judy Garland no doubt being one of them.

While most known for that role she had a big career that included a show years after talking a walk down the yellow brick road. Now Renée Zellweger is taking on the role of Garland in the film Judy costarring Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon.
Judy follows showbiz legend Judy Garland who arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
