This Month’s Highlight

Judy

A scale of “good” and “bad” doesn’t really feel like the most accurate way to assess what the actress does in director Rupert Goold’s biopic. It’s a big, committed performance, one that veers between acting and impersonation, and between attempts to capture the real Garland and the outsize image of her. There are times in which Zellweger’s absolutely electric — like the scene in which Judy is hustled, disoriented and anxious, on to an opening night stage in London where she’s slated to perform for the next month or so. Disaster seems imminent, unavoidable even, but instead she pulls herself together out there in the bright lights, and belts out a bravura version of “By Myself” that the movie captures in a long, agile take. Garland was one of the great entertainers of Hollywood, and Zellweger can’t replicate her singing, but what she does is lovely and just as impressive — she evokes the spirit of a Garland performance, all rich voice and richer emotion.—Alison Willmore
