La storia di una delle icone del cinema americano sta per arrivare sul grande schermo grazie a Renée Zellweger e al regista teatrale Rupert Goold.
Judy racconterà la vita di Judy Garland, a partire dalla commedia teatrale End of the Rainbow di Peter Quilter, che re-immagina gli ultimi giorni di vita della diva.
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland 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.”
Goold ha dichiarato “I felt Renee was uniquely qualified to play Judy. First, because she is a great, Oscar-winning dramatic actress. Second, she is a wonderful comedienne. And third, I knew from CHICAGO that she could sing. I made it clear to Renee that I wasn’t looking for an impersonation of Judy Garland’s inimitable voice, but what I wanted was for Renee to make the songs her own and this she did to thrilling effect.”
Nella carriera molto appannata della Zellweger, Judy potrebbe invertire la rotta…
L’uscita americana è prevista per il 27 settembre 2019.
