The United States versus Billie Holiday centers around the later time of the amazing jazz vocalist’s profession up until her demise in 1959—and the U.S. government’s steady abuse of her all through that time. Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Suzan-Lori Parks based her screenplay for the new film on Johann Hari’s success Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs, explicitly on the part about the government specialists who designated Holiday.
