Synopsis

The legendary Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, spent much of her career being adored by fans across the globe, all while the Federal Department of Narcotics targeted her with an undercover sting operation led by black Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had a tumultuous affair. Inspired by her life story, THE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY intimately examines her struggles with addiction, fame and heartbreaking love.

The film is brought to the screen by two-time Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels (The Butler, Precious) from a screenplay by Suzan-Lori Parks (Girl 6, Their Eyes Were Watching God) based on the novel by Johann Hari.
