Quotes

[first lines]
Louis B. Mayer: What do you see beyond this wall? Picture it. You've got an imagination; go ahead. What I see is a small town in the Midwest. A handful of churches, somewhere for the farmers to get drunk together. Maybe a salon for their wives to do their hair on the holidays. I visit these places.

JUST AMAZING
1 January 2020 | by RinoBortone91See all my reviews

Everything is based on the masterful interpretation of Renée Zellweger that takes us deep within Judy Garland's mind and past, to her past, to her was present and to her was future. A touching, strong and undoubtedly moving perspective. The film lacks a little emphasis and important background stories, I mean more lenght and more deepining about the childhood story of Judy couldn't be that bad, but despite the "small" things, the film is an excellent perspective on the life of a victim of the system (although it was a unique talent) and apart from Zellweger, you will find unique environments, lines and atmospheres for a film of genre that is always risky to manage. Good job and certainly the best and deepest performance of Renée Zellweger in her career.
