Unlike Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, the script here manages to hit all the highs of the play without feeling too stagey and stiff. Great performances all around and an outstanding debut for Regina King who directs with the same sensitivity she acts, and who adds to the play, most notably with the introduction of each character before their night at the motel, without feeling heavy handed or hammy.
I liked this one. I cant understand why it has 18+ age limit though. Can anybody explain?
As powerful as one of Muhammad Ali’s punches with the timeless urgency of Sam Cooke’s music, One Night in Miami is a fantastic imagining of four African-American champions at their peak. The dialogue is crisp, the staging is energetic and the message is so powerful it’s hard to resist. All four actors could see nominations, and the film is a strong contender for Best Picture. Wow. I loved this film. Regina King knocked it out of the park — and then some.
