Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill full movie review - A Sloppy Drunken Masterpiece

I saw this in New York live with Audra McDonald in 2014. It was the most convincing acting that I had ever seen--especially live. The story and music have haunted me since that night.

I always tell people that that night I did not see Audra McDonald perform; I saw Billie Holiday perform. From the moment it started, I was captivated. When I found out about it being on HBO, I was ecstatic. I would put the New York performance at comfortable 10. The only reason I am ranking this as a 9 is because I don't know what it's like to experience the HBO version without comparing it. There are very minute differences about the two; they're nearly identical. However, the HBO version is slightly less convincing at least in the beginning. From God Bless the Child to the end it's painfully intoxicating. I highly recommend it, and if you decide to watch it, take away all distractions. Imagine you are actually in the bar watching one of the greatest jazz musicians in history.
