In the 1940’s, the US government targeted beloved jazz icon Billie Holiday as part of their war on drugs, to prevent her from performing her heart-wrenching ballad Strange Fruit, a blatant cry against lynching. Directed by Lee Daniels, written by Suzan-Lori Parks and starring Andra Day.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Although The United States vs. Billie Holiday often falls shy of its subject's transcendence, Andra Day's performance offers brilliant compensation.
Disappointing biopic has drug use, violence, sex.
