"ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI... is a knockout. This powerfully imagined gathering of giants - Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown - announces the arrival of Regina King as a singular voice behind the camera. A meticulously choreographed dreamscape that leaps from the words of writer Kemp Powers, the film asks, 'What if...' and then confronts the complicated legacy of race in America with searing insights ignited by a war of words, the bonds of brotherhood and the hope that change is gonna come." -The American Film Institute

Based on the award-winning play of the same name, and directed by Regina King, One Night In Miami... is a fictional account inspired by the historic night these four formidable figures spent together. It looks at the struggles these men faced and the vital role they each played in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility still resonate.

The film was released on Amazon Prime Video on January 15th.
