According to USA TODAY
Judy is set in the late 1960s as Garland arrives in the British capital for a run of sell-out concerts at the Talk of the Town nightclub before her untimely death.
Garland died of an accidental overdose in 1969 at age 47 in London.
The movie will recount Garland’s performances, with Zellweger singing some of her best-known numbers — including Somewhere Over the Rainbow from her greatest film success in 1939’s The Wizard of Oz.
Judy will also delve into Garland’s behind-the-scenes battles with her management, her relationships with musicians and fans as well as family drama playing out behind-the-scenes of the London performances.
