Movie Info

On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. When underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali, (Eli Goree), defeats heavy weight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall, Clay memorialized the event with three of his friends: Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge).

Usually, with these kind of films, people get caught up in the historical, they move and shift events around, but really, it embraces the spirit of the time and the characters. Can't speak highly enough for it.

One of the captivating elements of this 110-minute movie is its one-night setting. We see the men as they were then and only then.

One Night in Miami... allows us to see these men beyond how history has written them - as figures of pure action and ideology - and as something more relatably human.
