One Night in Miami...

Updated: Oct 14, 2021

When every "Black film" is centered around struggle, inequality, and death, Regina King brought the appropriate conversation-piece to the table. Her first full-movie, directed film was perfect for ringing in 2021, as it left you with new perspectives on the black experience in America. Who is using their abilty to push us forward? How are they doing it? Why is it the successful black individual's responsibility? Hearing the ideas and motives of four pivitol voices in Black Culture, was galvanizing to say the least. While this was a fictional piece, King, with the talents of Leslie Odom Jr., Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, and Aldis Hodge, was able to immerse the viewer in that Hampton House room. Moving words and heavy emotions were the cornerstone of this film, and you will be left with plenty of powerful quotables. Even if you don't know the history of the Civil Rights Movement, you will understand the severity of the situation and how it directly relates to what the Black Community is experiencing currently.
