The United States vs. Billie Holiday-Hulu

Audra Day’s lioness performance that roars through the life of Billie Holiday is sabotaged by Lee Daniel’s direction and an inept script. Bio-pics are a minefield and this is a doozy. The film whiplashes through Holiday’s drug abuse and racism without a new perspective. With the cliché-ridden beginning interview peppered with flashbacks, an audience can only punt and grown waiting for Audra Day’s brilliant evocations of Billie Holiday’s songs.
