Cinema of the Blues School: "Lady Sings the Blues"

Often remembered for the Oscar nominated performance of Diana Ross, "Lady Sings the Blues" documents the rise and fall of Billie Holiday. With billie Dee Williams and Richard Pryor in strong supporting roles, Diana shines when on center stage singing the blues. Her Oscar nomination comes from her subtle moments of dispair and misery. The scenes of domestic violence are operatic, but painfully real.
