Greetings film fans:
Wednesday night brings us the tragic story of Billie Holiday as portrayed by Andra Day in her Oscar-nominated performance.
In 1947, at the peak of her career, Billie Holiday was arrested and charged with possession of narcotics in a sting operation, which resulted in her spending a year in jail and losing her cabaret license.
Although she came back to perform at several sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, she was plagued by ill-health (no doubt due to her ongoing narcotics use and legal problems) and died in 1959 at the age of 44.
A great performance by Andra Day. Here’s the IMDb link:
