Judy IS Judy!
What starts out as a slightly better-than-average Hollywood biopic becomes sheer dynamite when Judy Davis takes over the role of the talented, tormented "Rainbow Girl" herself, Judy Garland. She perfectly conveys all the professional and personal highs and lows of a unique show biz legend. Garland herself was always something of a dichotomy. Professionally, at her best ("Oz," the Palace, Carnegie), no one could touch her; as a human being, no one in their right mind would want to BE her. Davis conveys this every step on the way. Even when her vocals are dubbed by the original Garland recordings, you're watching a true pro at work.

Not that she's the only reason for seeing this film by any means. Victor Garber brings his usual understated but powerful presence to the role of Sid Luft, Hugh Laurie is a solid Vincente Minelli, and the late Al Waxman, who died just before the film was aired, makes a good L.B. Mayer.

It would seem that Judy Garland would be just too big of a subject to bring to the screen. But the producers, and a lady named Davis, have done so, brilliantly.
