UK 2019. Dir Rupert Goold. With Renée Zellweger, Rufus Sewell, Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Michael Gambon. 118min. Digital. 12A.
By the 1960s, Judy Garland was practically destitute - an unfortunate victim of Hollywood's child star factory, drug and alcohol abuse and a string of failed marriages. Judy focuses on her troubled stint at London's Talk of the Town where she reluctantly agreed to appear purely to pay the bills and to keep her children with her. Renée Zellweger as Garland gives the performance of her life, remarkably capturing her vulnerability, her sardonic wit and her incredible talent that bewitched, and continues to bewitch, fans worldwide. And if Judy leaves you hungry for more Judy on the big screen, The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St Louis and A Star Is Born will all play in December as part of the BFI Musicals! season. Heather Osborn, Programme & Research Co-ordinator.
Tickets on sale to BFI Patrons and Champions Fri 11 Oct 11:30, to BFI Members Fri 11 Oct 12:30 and to the public from Sat 12 Oct 11:30.

When Jay & Silent Bob discover that a reboot of the Bluntman & Chronic movie (a movie based on a comic book based on them) is being made (and they lose the right to use their own names after the company behind it take out an injunction against them), they head off to ChronicCon in Hollywood to stop it. Along the way, they run into Jay's old girlfriend and discover he has a daughter he never knew he had - one who forces Jay & Silent Bob, at knifepoint, to take her and her three friends with them to Hollywood, so they can be extras in the new movie.
Kevin Smith will join for a Q&A to discuss his new film which takes on remakes, reboots and sequels, while simultaneously being all three!
