DIANA ROSS DELIVERS LIKE NON OTHER. NEVER HAD ANY ACTING CLASSES AND SHE COMPLETELY SLAYS IN HER VERY FIRST MOVIE ROLE. THE CRITICS SAID THAT SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PULL IT OFF, BUT SHE DID THAT AND THEN SOME! RECEIVED AN OSCAR NOD FOR HER PORTRAYAL AS BILLIE HOLIDAY IN THIS TOUR DE FORCE. THE QUEEN BEE DIVA DID THE DAMN THANG!!! REIGN SUPREME DI!!! 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.

I saw this when I was very young and I didn't understand it. But was SO IN LOVE with the music. Still to this day, I love Billie Holiday. Having watched it now, I totally understand the whole deal of the movie itself. IDK if this is a great depiction of Billie, but, WOW, Diana Ross is FANTASTIC in this role!!! This took me over the bridge of waters. I so laughed, and cried my eyes out because of the struggle and Richard Prior making me laugh. What a SENSATIONAL movie. I'm guessing Billie Dee Williams was the Shemar Moore of our time. (I guess) But that was such an outstanding movie. I have no idea as mentioned before why Diana Ross did NOT win the Oscar for this! I'm so in shock. But this has got to be one of the most amazing movie depictions ever. (And yet I don't know her story). But this one does it for me. And I still listen to her music. I LOVED IT MORE NOW!!!!!

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 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!!!!!!!
