United States vs Billie Holiday, The
In the 1940s, Holiday is targeted by the government in an attempt to stop her singing her song “Strange Fruit”, in order to racialise the war on drugs. With the sting operation led by Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher (Trevante Rhodes, Moonlight) - with whom Holiday had a tumultuous affair - the film intimately tells a story of an incredibly talented yet complicated woman’s relationship with heartbreak, fame and addiction.
