“ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI is a fictional account of one incredible night where icons Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown gathered discussing their roles in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 60s.”
Odie Henderson Review Snippet From RogerEbert.com :
It’s rare to see a film about one Black legend relating to other Blacks, let alone four of them. While we’ll never know what really was said or done, “One Night In Miami” is a wonderfully rendered fiction, a what-if scenario that doesn’t sacrifice its honesty and complexity in favor of easier to digest scenarios. Some big issues are presented to the viewer and the characters, issues that haven’t gone away. Unfortunately, three of the four legends in this film have left us, making this an especially bittersweet fly-on-the-wall drama. You’ll laugh a lot, cry a little, and fondly think of it often.
Odie gave the film 3.5 out of 4 stars.
Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge, Leslie Odom Jr. and Kingsley Ben-Adir are the four actors who have the incredible task of portraying Cassius Clay, Jim Brown, Sam Cooke and Malcom X. Other reviewers are already whispering the word “Oscar” around these performances and the film as whole, but we don’t want to jinx anything.
Thank you again to Chris, Ann and CP for making time to share the very entertaining news right out of Central Illinois!
