Let’s look at the ingredients: Anne Hathaway, one of our favouritest actresses du moment (she was the only person at any awards ceremony to pull Mr. Obama up for picking a homophobic pastor to open his inauguration).
Judy Garland, a most compelling performer and star of Wizard of Oz who it’s now officially cool to like because Rufus Wainwright recreated her Live at Carnegie Hall concert.
A film. We like films because you get to eat sugary treats and drink a glass of wine. All at the same time.
In short, Anne Hathaway (this one, not the wife of William Shakespeare) will star in a film about Judy Garland based on a book called Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland. We are expecting something along the lines of La Vie en Rose, only without subtitles.
*story ends. We take off our trousers, keep on our suit jacket, feel along the edge of our fedora and break into a rendition of ‘Get Happy’* Join us – you can be one of the clapping gentlemen – after the jump. And see AH, as we know her, doing song and dance at this year’s Oscars (skip to about 4:50)…
