JUDY is a drama, based on real events, which concerns US singer and actress Judy Garland's arrival in England to perform a series of concerts in 1968.

Drugs

There are several scenes in which Judy Garland takes unidentified pills, which she was compelled to take from an early age by a film studio head in order to maintain her weight and ensure she could work long hours. Her reliance on drugs throughout the rest of her life takes an increasing toll on her health, and drug misuse is therefore not condoned by the film as a whole.

Language

The film contains infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms (for example. 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'bastards', 'bloody', 'hell', 'jerk', 'God', 'Jesus' and 'goddamn').

There is also infrequent discriminatory language ('faggot'); however, this is not condoned by the film as a whole.

The film also contains mild sex references, as well as scenes in which adults smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol.
