A documentary about the life of iconic jazz singer Billie Holiday, "Billie" features newly unearthed interviews from those who knew Holiday best -- Charles Mingus, Tony Bennett, Sylvia Syms and Count Basie among them -- and features performances restored into color for the first time. It helps paint the picture of a singer with breathtaking talent and global popularity, and whose song "Strange Fruit" exposed the realities of black life in America and earned her powerful enemies over her short, turbulent life. She died almost penniless in 1959 at age 44.
