Renee Zellweiger just won an Academy Award for portraying Judy Garland in this film. Well deserved.

Troubling at times to watch as this follows Judy Garland from her early days and the last few years of her life.

I had no idea that as a very young woman, film makers were giving her amphetamines to keep her from gaining weight, while not allowing her to eat. Then giving her barbiturates at night to sleep. The next time you watch The Wizard of Oz, think about that.

The film gives you an insight into Judy, as the performer, mother, and her real self.

Some great songs sung by Renee herself.

Watch it.
