Me and My Shadows Movie Review Summary

Actors: Judy Davis

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Me and My Shadows

    This is one of the saddest stories there is. It's the story of Judy Garland played wonderfully by Judy Davis which is based on the book, Me and My Shadows. The story is told from the view of Garland's daughter, Lorna Luft. Her disease of being addicted to drugs. Her children have to take care of her when she should have been in a hospital. But of course then they didn't know about taking proper care of those things like we do today. A very powerful story.
