Judy ★★½

Judy is a biopic focused on Judy Garland during her time in London. She performs shows as more of a last-ditch effort to support her children while dealing with a divorce, addiction, and depression.

What will garner most of the attention out of this film is Renée Zellweger's portrayal as Judy Garland. She certainly brings a lot of energy and charisma to the role - although maybe a bit too much in a few sequences. When it comes to the more emotional scenes along with the musical numbers on stage, Renée indeed shines.

Much of the story covers a lot of similar story tropes with a failed love interest and showcasing the lowest of the lows only to rise at the top at the end. For a film that is under two hours, it suffers from significant pacing issues, as the direction lacks much upbeat pacing and personality.
