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.
