Depends on what tones you want but the setup handles most pedals very well.

For all the liberties the film takes with the facts of Holiday's life, the bottomless hurt in Ross' voice as she channels Holiday's tartly tragic spirit rings true.

Nathan Rabin. Ross conveys the vulnerability and determination of her character across a very believable arc of maturation. Douglas Pratt. How is it possible for a movie that is otherwise so dreadful to contain such a singularly attractive performance in the title role? Vincent Canby. The movie is filled with many of the great Billie Holiday songs, and Ross handles them in an interesting way. She doesn't sing in her own style, and she never tries to imitate Holiday, but she sings somehow in the manner of Holiday.

Roger Ebert. Clearly, it's an affront to Holiday's art, but just as clearly, it's a good piece of low entertainment. Dave Kehr. Though she doesn't look or sing as Billie Holiday, Diana Rosss gives a commendable performance in this fictionalized biopic, for which she received an Oscar noimination.

Emanuel Levy. View this film about Billie Holiday as a completely fictional story, and you'll enjoy it far more than you would otherwise. Robert Roten. Ross so perfectly captures the essence of Billie Holiday's vocal style that it sends chills down your spine.

Cole Smithey. Eric Henderson. Ross and director Sidney J. Furie seem to feel that the slower the song, the more serious the mood, so at times the film seems to be grinding almost to a halt.

View All Photos 4. Movie Info. Diana Ross plays the magnificent, tragic song stylist Billie Holiday, who while writhing in a strait jacket in a prison cell, awaiting sentencing on drug charges, reflects on her turbulent life.

The film takes several liberties with the year existence of "Lady Day.

Bert Click here as The Policeman. When she returns to her aunt's house, she is home alone and is raped by a man that followed her home from the brothel. Nominated for 5 Oscars. Still, while the film stands to sints harder, it has just enough juice behind it to keep you going, sometimes genuinely compelled, and often reasonably entertained, partially thanks to nice musical tastes.
