There is something so alluring about Diana Ross, she's a great actress! She plays troubled star Billy Holiday flawlessly. It's a sad but magical movie. Billy Dee's character was great and I loved Richard Pryor as well, definitely a classic movie

DIANA ROSS DELIVERS LIKE NON OTHER. NEVER HAD ANY ACTING CLASSES AND HER VERY FIRST ROLE. THE CRITICS SAID THAT SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PULL IT OFF, BUT SHE DID THAT AND THEN SOME! RECEIVED AN OSCAR NOM FOR HER PORTRAYAL AS BILLIE HOLIDAY. 10/10

Outstanding! This film is legend. Diana Ross is just amazing period. Especially here as Billie holliday but this movie wouldn't be as raw and brilliant if not for Richard Pryor. These performances will always be remembered and Ms hollidays music is devine. Awesome flick.

Diana Ross was amazing in this film. I don't know much about Billie Holiday, but I thought this was a really good biography. Classic film. And a must see.

Liked it. All the movie (script included) is got the most elegant chic of the 70's. Not quite sure that the actual Billie's bio is quite right about that smooth relationship with men portrayed here, but just avoiding the amount of truth of certain aspects of her life, the movies is very beautiful & touching. 8/10

I have never been a huge fan of her as a singer, but Diana Ross was robbed when she did not win the Oscar for her amazing performance in this movie..INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!
