Regina King’s One Night in Miami Is a Timely, Star-Studded Masterpiece


Regina King may want to start making room on her mantel, because she’s probably going to need it come award season. The 49-year-old Oscar-winning actress (and now director) is coming in swinging with her feature directorial debut, One Night in Miami. The film – which is based on the 2016 stage play by Kemp Powers of the same name – reimagines a fictional conversation between four Black icons – Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali), Jim Brown, Sam Cooke, and Malcolm X – on the night of Feb. 25, 1964, the historic date that Clay became the world’s heavyweight champion after defeating Sonny Liston.

It stars Leslie Odom Jr., Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, and Aldis Hodge, and it’s a beautiful, gripping, and incredibly timely tale that tackles an often-untold story about the Black experience in the ’60s. One Night in Miami will not only captivate you from start to finish, but it will also hopefully inspire some much-needed conversations about race, religion, and personal responsibility. Ahead, check out all the reasons One Night in Miami is a must watch.
