The United States vs. Billie Holiday

Biography, Drama, Musical 2h 10m 2021

A biopic of Billie Holiday during her career as she is targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation, led by Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had a tumultuous affair.

“Day mesmerizes even when Lee Daniels’ unwieldy bio-drama careens all over the map with stylistic inconsistency and narrative dysfunction, settling for episodic electricity in the absence of a robust connective thread. It’s a mess, albeit an absorbing one, driven by a raw central performance of blistering indignation, both tough and vulnerable.” ~ David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
