Our Spring 2020 Film Programme at Walsingham’s village cinema at Walsingham Parish Hall continues on Tuesday February 25th with JUDY.

Winner of Best Actress BAFTA for Renée Zellweger playing Judy Garland

Tuesday February 25th

Judy 12A 118 mins Biopic/Drama. Director Rupert Goold, with Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell, Michael Gambon.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-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 love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.

Mrs Lowry & Son 12A 91 mins Biopic/Drama. Director Adrian Noble, with Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall.

A portrait of the artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) and his strained relationship with his mother, Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Set in 1934 – five years before both her passing and Lowry’s first taste of success – the film chronicles Elizabeth’s ongoing attempts to discourage her son’s artistic ambitions. Bedridden and bitter about the life she’s had, Elizabeth takes her frustration out on her son, who attends to her every need. But Lowry also continues to paint, finding beauty in his surroundings and an escape from his overbearing mother.
