New Billie Holiday Film Gets First Trailer: Watch


A new film about the life of legendary singer Billie Holiday is coming to Hulu. The United States vs. Billie Holiday is directed by Lee Daniels and stars R&B singer Andra Day in the titular role. According to a press release, the film “unapologetically presents the icon’s complicated, irrepressible life.” The film features a screenplay by Suzan-Lori Parks and also stars Trevante Rhodes, Natasha Lyonne, Garrett Hedlund, Miss Lawrence, and more. Watch the trailer below.

In a press release, Lee Daniels writes, “Whether you are new to the story and legacy of Billie Holiday or know every note she ever sang, I do hope our celebration of this complex woman does justice to a great musical legend and civil rights activist whose artistry resonates as well today, as it did 80 years ago. Hulu releasing this film and giving it a platform to be seen nationwide is a blessing, because as recent events reveal, our country has much work to do in fulfilling its promise of a more perfect union.”
