Reel Reviews | Billie

by Tim Gordon

Welcome to Reel Reviews, This week, we review several films that were screened at the 2020 Middleburg Film Festival. First up is the documentary, Billie.

In 1971, journalist Linda Lipnack Kuehl set out to write the definitive biography of Billie Holiday. Over 8 years, she tracked down and tape-recorded over 200 hours of interviews with the extraordinary characters that populated the iconic singer’s short, tumultuous life. However, Linda’s book was never finished and the tapes never heard — until now.
