1 Resenha
Judy Garland's youngest daughter was born into a life of glamour and fame. However, her abbreviated childhood yielded to a complicated adolescence when, at twelve, she became her mother's caretaker. Luft reflects on the self-destruction and addiction she and her sister, Liza Minelli, inherited upon Garland's death. Me and My Shadows is a rare and extraordinary window into one of Hollywood's most celebrated families and the deeply personal story of Judy Garland's "other daughter".
