Renee Zellweger dazzles as the beloved actress and singer Judy Garland in this biopic from acclaimed theatre and film director Rupert Goold, adapted from the Made in Northampton production End of the Rainbow. 30 years after The Wizard of Oz, Garland arrives in London to performn sold-out shows, whilst reminiscing with friends and beginning a whirlwind romance. The film also stars Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Chernobyl), Michael Gambon (Harry Potter), and Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle).
Rupert Goold has a legendary presence here at the Royal & Derngate, as he used to be an Artistic Director, and he has made a phenomenal transition into film with this beautiful and moving biopic.
