Renee Zellweger owned her portrayal of Judy Garland. I could not take my eyes off her. She belted out the tunes herself. The scenes with her two fans, who comfort her in the beginning of the movie and help save her at the end, are stunning.

These days, with streaming and episode drops once a week, it is a pleasure to watch a two hour movie that grabs the heart, holds the heart, and releases the heart ~~ in the end.

That’s how I feel, anyway.
