This looks like a good film.

Holiday had a very distinctive voice, both speaking and singing, and it sounds like Audra Day hit it just right. It’s not a facsimile of Holiday’s voice, but she captures the essence of it.

Bitch, please!!

Diana Ross neither looked nor sounded anything like Billie Holiday.

by Anonymousreply 401/12/2021

I would have sworn that was Billie Holidays singing.

No, but it’s a good approximation.

Thank God.

Diana Ross gave an Oscar worthy performance but it was a fictionalized interpretation.

Day looks and sounds stunning and eerily accurate. She’s coming for dicks, wigs, precursors, AND the Oscar.

Also, it looks like Lee is back in form.

This looks incredible. If Lee Daniels is back in form, could this be a best picture candidate? From the previews alone, If the previews are anything to go by, Andra Day will be a serious Oscar contender.

Hell yes. True story, check; icon, check; topical and still relevant, check.

And isn’t it so perfect and fitting that Audra Day has probably given the definitive performance of “Lady Day.”

by Anonymousreply 1601/12/2021

Im surprised they didn't consider Nicole Kidman or at least Julia Roberts or the role

After seeing Audra McDonald's performance in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill on HBO, I don't know if I can watch another Billie impression.

Alright for Miss Lawrence getting movie work!! Men on film baby, two snaps and a twist!

R18 Chile, please. MacDonald is cute but based on this trailer, doesn’t touch the hem of Audra’s gown.

I can just [italic]feel[/italic] that this is going to be my favorite performance this year.

*Andra’s gown

by Anonymousreply 2101/12/2021

The Prada-designed costumes are gorgeous. I saw Andra perform in a small club in LA a few years ago and she's the real deal. Funny, sweet, and an incredible voice. Vogue has a lovely editorial of the designs but I am not allowed to post them here for some reason.

I need this movie NOW. Perfect night for it, too.

I can't wait!

I have a feeling it's gonna suck. Hope I'm wrong. Billie is my favorite singer.

I saw Audra McDonald and she was perfection.

Don’t need to see Audra Day

Andra Day

by Anonymousreply 27Last Friday at 7:22 PM

I'm actually shocked. This looks like a Lee Daniels film that I can watch all the way through and enjoy. It will be a first for me.

He always thought of himself as the Black Almodovar, and like Almodovar who also went through his his campy/trashy/sensationalistic phase while finally moving more into more artistry territory, it looks like Lee Daniels is doing the same. I say bravo. He saw Barry Jenkins' success with Moonlight and he'll be damned if Jenkins becomes the first African American (as well as gay) man to win Best Director.

Sorry for all the typos.

When does this shit come out? I don’t want to see it or Viola.

You know who does a spot on (and hilarious) impression of Billie? David Sedaris.

R32, that was hilarious!

The trailer looks good but it’s obvious Andra’s not a refined actress. But I expect she’ll be good enough

by Anonymousreply 36Last Saturday at 11:25 AM

R36 She will be Oscar worthy .
