With Judy nominated for Oscars in the Best Actress and Make-Up categories, a new featurette has been released showing Renee’s transformation into the singer and actress.
It’s short but fascinating, adding extra wrinkles being the opposite of what most of us try to do with make up. Check it out below, and scroll down for news on Judy‘s upcoming UK home entertainment release and images from the film.
The film is released in the UK on digital download on 25 January and on Blu-ray & DVD on 3 February. You can read my review here. The Blu-ray and DVD come with these special features:
- Behind the scenes featurette
- Transformation: Becoming Judy featurette
- Three deleted scenes
Here’s the movie synopsis:
Winter 1968, and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in London, to perform in a sell-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 romance seem undimmed, as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.
And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Will she have the strength to go on? 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”.
