    Judy ... is happy to let [Renée] Zellweger take centre stage. Thank god, because it's the performance of a lifetime.

    Zellweger hasn't quite lost her off-putting propensity for straining for effect by scrunching up her face and squinting into the distance. Nonetheless, it's a remarkable performance.

    Just concentrate on Judy's emotional journey, though, and you'll be fine.

    This is emphatically a movie about Renée Zellweger playing Judy Garland, reclaiming the mantle of 'serious actor' that marked her for greatness nearly two decades ago...To which I can only add: Mission Accomplished.

    Don't expect a comprehensive biopic. This film follows the tragic twilight of Garland's career. Rather than a star is born, it's a star burns out, so get your hankies ready.
