Slice-of-life dramedy that imagines what occurred the night Cassius Clay spent with activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football player Jim Brown after Clay's historic win over heavyweight champ Sonny Liston in 1964.
This slice-of-life dramedy that the LA Times calls “engaging and thought-provoking” imagines what occurred the night of Cassius Clay’s historic win over heavyweight champ Sonny Liston. Declining a glamorous party, Clay celebrates with his friends: activist Malcom X, singer Sam Cooke and football player Jim Brown. Each man argues his vision for what it means to be black in 1964, culminating in an early morning announcement from Clay that will shock the world. Filled with “crackling good dialogue and timely themes,” as proclaimed by Variety, One Night in Miami... is a “decisive knockout.”
