JUDY (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Judy—great acting by Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland—also uses the child actress, Darci Shaw to play the young Judy Garland. Richard Cordery plays, with finesse, a terrific Louis B. Mayer, and Finn Wittrock does very well as Mickey Deans. The movie is a very good watch with great music.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

 Yes. It’s always a question how true this type of movie is and how much a story has been manipulated for entertainment purposes; but despite the obvious questions, the highly entertaining movie brings its audience down a wonderful memory lane with its music. Great work for all involved.
