Andra Day sings passionately as Billie Holiday in the film The United States vs Billie HolidayTHE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY

“This biopic of jazz legend Billy Holiday feels more jazzy and legendary than biographical.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

“Day doesn’t simply imitate, but somehow packs an otherworldly power and tenderness into every phrase, no small feat given how idiosyncratic, brilliantly spontaneous and indelible were Holiday’s interpretive gifts.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“The horror of THE VIGIL has to do with confronting one’s life and finding the strength to go on living it. – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
