Andra Day, Natasha Lyonne, Trevante Rhodes and Garrett Hedlund are the stars of director Lee Daniels’s latest music/biography/drama, The United States vs. Billie Holiday.

The story follows the American soul/jazz singer during her career as she’s targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation. An operation led by Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, a man with whom Holiday had a tumultuous affair.

I knew Holiday was targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics but I didn’t know that a Federal Agent ex lover was the one behind it.

Even though I’m not very familiar with Holiday’s music, I’m into her boldness, style, strength and unique voice. Plus, it looks like a good performance by all, especially Day is coming our way.

Lastly, I can’t say that I don’t suddenly have an urge to start wearing flowers in my hair, because I do.

Tyler James Williams, Evan Ross, Rob Morgan, Tone Bell, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dana Gourrier, Melvin Gregg, Erik LaRay Harvey, Miss Lawrence and Tristan D. Lalla also star.

The United States vs. Billie Holiday Release Dates: February 26th, 2021 (US); March 12th, 2021 (UK), Internet…

Happy Film Loving

  1. Looks really good. Didn’t know that story at all, but it in no way surprises me, as she has the double-whammy of being both a woman and being black. Will be seeing it and plan on seeing if there are any books out there on the subject. If there aren’t there need to be.

      1. I saw Lady Sings the Blues when it first came out. I know a little about Billie Holiday but not about how she was harassed by the FBI out of vengeance spurred by a jilted lover.

      2. In that case, not sure where the jilted lover info might be, besides from her inner circle and in some documentaries about her. It will be interesting to see how much the movie reveals and who’s playing the bitter ex.
