(OK) Partial biopic supporting the idea of Billie discriminated through persecution against drugs (more than credible) but somehow missing some points of how she must feel; and focusing on Jimmy Fletcher character....

An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Lee Daniels, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, to be honest, I wasn’t really familiar with Billie Holiday’s life and career so it was already pretty neat to get more acquainted with this great artist. On top of that, even though I didn’t know much about Billie Holiday, I was still impressed... read more

On top of that, even though I didn’t know much about Billie Holiday, I was still impressed by Andra Day who not only had a great voice but also delivered a strong performance. As a result, she was even nominated for an Academy Award for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, a nomination she definitely deserved. Unfortunately, even though it was an intriguing story, I’m afraid the rest of the movie was not really good. Indeed, even though the title might make you think” read more

" 2021 Director: Lee Daniels His 6th movie My 3rd movie watched from the director It feels like a made-for-tv movie that desperately wanted to be a worthwhile picture. Andra Day does okay in the stage performances but I didn't buy her act otherwise and she didn't have much talent to play off of. But more importantly the story was not large enough for a full-length movie. A full biopic might have been more fulfilling. I really wanted to like this movie, but left disappointed. Added to Lis"
