The biographical drama follows the obstacles Holiday (Andra Day) faced when government officials worked to prevent her from performing her song speaking out against lynching, Strange Fruit. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics chief Harry Anslinger (Garrett Hedlund) harrassed Holiday by an investigation that at face value was about her heroin use but was really just a means to prevent her from performing her infamous ballad. The film explores themes of drug addiction, fame, and heartbreak.
“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,” Said Lee Daniels, the director of the film and co-creator of Empire.
