I bought this for my wife for Christmas in the absence of a DVD documentary about the life of Judy Garland. It plainly isn't this and it does suffer from mini-series-itis inasmuch as it is rather glamourous and slick, but the central performances are good and it does offer a good starting point from which to go on and found out more.
So, if you want an in-depth biog, best read a book. If you want to spend an enjoyable few hours on Boxing Day immmersed in the life of a troubled superstar, this will do fine.
By the way, don't worry about the case being in Dutch: the Dutch subtitles can be turned off and, once playing, the fact that it is a European edition is neither here nor there.
