"Lady Day's" pain and incomparable talent feel authentic, thanks solely to Andra Day. Everything around her feels so shamefully inauthentic that it dishonors both.March 28, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
Andra Day is amazing, and she is far and away the best part of this movie.
It all hangs on Andra Day's performance. She's fantastic in this movie.
I think overall there were some moving moments, but the execution kind of left something to be desired... I always judge a film by whether or not I'd watch again - and for me? Once was enough.
It feels like I'm watching trauma porn with one hell of a soundtrack.March 9, 2021 | Full Review…
The biggest flaw of The United States vs. Billie Holiday, besides its commitment to substituting shocking violence for character development, is that it cannot decide how its leading lady sees herself.March 9, 2021 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for The United States vs. Billie Holiday
Mar 03, 2021Come for the surface introduction to Holiday's remarkable and challenging life. Stay for Andra Day's weathered, sultry performance. Tolerate Daniel's slides into lurid sensationalism and episodic timelining that misses an overarching connection.Marisol M Super Reviewer
