Renee Zellweger took home a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of legendary performer Judy Garland, as she arrives in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts.

This movie is a loose adaptation of the Olivier-nominated play "End of the Rainbow". Peter Quilter, the playwright behind "End of the Rainbow", said that he believed Screenwriter Tom Edge "wanted the story to be much more true and precise", with less "elements of fantasy" than the play.

The film addresses the harsh treatment Judy Garland received at MGM in the 1930s and 1940s. They put her on a strict diet and gave her prescription medication to control her weight and to help her sleep or stay awake, medication to which she eventually became addicted.

 

Make-up Designer Jeremy Woodhead had to prosthetically extend the tip of Renée Zellweger's nose ever so slightly in order to better match Judy Garland's profile. Dark gray contact lenses were fitted to approximate Garland's dark brown eyes, and a cropped walnut-brown wig was fashioned to resemble Garland's iconic hairdo.
