JUDY comes to movie theaters this October

Renée Zellweger has been cast as Judy Garland in this movie about the Hollywood legend that will open in theaters this October. The movie opens with the star arriving in London in the winter of 1968 to perform in a sell-out run. As you might imagine, drama ensues as she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans. But after working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids.

The movie will feature some of her best-known songs, including the timeless classic ‘Over the Rainbow’, JUDY celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”. Assuming this is as well done as the trailer looks, I bet you can expect an Oscar nomination for Renée.

Biopic: Mapplethorpe to open March 1st

Ondi Timoner, Samuel Goldwyn Films, Matt Smith, Marianne Rendón, John Benjamin Hickey, Mark Moses, Carolyn McCormick, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kerry ButlerA new film about the life and work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe opens next month. For those who are unfamiliar with Mapplethorpe, Wikipedia describes his work as “sensitive yet blunt treatment of controversial subject-matter in the large-scale, highly stylized black and white medium of photography.” His most controversial work is that of the BDSM subculture in the late 1960s and early 1970s of New York City. The homoeroticism of this work fuelled a national debate over the public funding of controversial artwork.

The movie, Mapplethorpe, opens March 1 and depicts his life from moments before he and Patti Smith moved into the famed Chelsea hotel, where he begins photographing its inhabitants and his new found circle of friends including artists and musicians, socialites, film stars, and members of the S&M underground. Exploring the intersection of his art, his sexuality and his struggle for mainstream recognition, the film offers a nuanced portrait of an artist at the height of his craft and his self-destructive impulses.

At this point, I don’t have details for where or when this film will show in Boston.
