- OSCAR NOMINEE - 

A raw and heartfelt examination of the legendary Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time who was adored by fans across the globe for her exceptional talent and glamorous style.

But as her profile and influence grew in 1940s America, the federal government targeted Holiday, ultimately aiming to stop her from singing her controversial and heart-wrenching ballad, “Strange Fruit” – and silence her by any means necessary.

From Oscar® nominated director Lee Daniels (The Butler) and featuring an iconic breakout performance from Golden Globe® winner and Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Andra Day alongside stars Garrett Hedlund, Natasha Lyonne and Trevante Rhodes, THE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY is a must-see, big-screen drama that takes an intimate look at Holiday’s struggles with fame, love and addiction as well as how her song ‘Strange Fruit’ inspired a nation to stand up and made her an icon of the stage.

Only in cinemas.
