What’s Coming to Plex in October, Including ‘Judy,’ ‘The Reader,’ ‘I Am Not Your Negro’
The Oscar-winning movie “Judy” is coming to free streaming service Plex in October. Renée Zellweger won the Academy Award for Best Actress playing Judy Garland, the iconic, but tormented performer. The film follows Garland as she travels to London to perform at a posh nightclub. But haunted by her demons, she struggles to maintain her equilibrium, while beginning a romance with musician Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock), who eventually became her fifth husband.

Also arriving on the platform in October is the controversial film “The Reader,” which also won a Best Actress honor for Kate Winslet. The film is about a teenage Jewish boy named Michael Berg who has a sexual relationship with an older woman named Hannah, played by Winslet. Years later, she is revealed as a Nazi guard at a concentration camp on trial for war crimes. Michael is the only one who realizes Hanna is illiterate and may be concealing that fact at the expense of her freedom.
The moving 2018 documentary “I Am Not Your Negro” explores racism in the U.S. via the framework of author and activist James Baldwin’s unfinished final novel. Director Raoul Peck creates a meditation on what it means to be Black in the United States by remembering civil-rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.
All three films will land on the service on Oct. 1.
