Adapted by Kemp Powers from his acclaimed play, the feature directorial debut of Academy Award–winning actor Regina King puts viewers in a room with four icons at the forefront of Black American culture as they carouse, clash, bare their souls, and grapple with their places within the sweeping change of the civil rights movement. February 25, 1964, has gone down in history as the day that the brash young boxer Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) defeated Sonny Liston, but what happened after the fight was perhaps even more incredible: Ali, civil rights leader Malcolm X, NFL great Jim Brown, and “King of Soul” Sam Cooke all came together at a Miami motel. Electric with big ideas and activist spirit, One Night in Miami . . .plunges us into the midst of an intimate, ongoing conversation—and a defining moment in American history.

How does this count as a 2020 release?

It debuted on Amazon Prime in January. I thought it counted as a 2021 release eligible for this year's Oscars ceremony because they extended the eligibility period to the end of February. But it still came out in January.

(I'm not trying to be argumentative here; I'm genuinely confused.)

It was screen a couple of times in 2020. On Christmas Day it was shown in Miami.

Is this the first Amazon Studios title to be released by Criterion?

No. Criterion previously released Cold War which was an Amazon Studios acquisition. Criterion will also be releasing Sound of Metal at some point next year.

Brings questions to the fore.

Shot digitally in 4.5 and 6.5k.

Finished as a 4k DI.

Who approved post for the original release what - eight months ago?

One of the hotel maids?

It did appear a bit rough around the edges back then, so I’m thrilled that Regina King was finally allowed to complete her film.

Did she need to go back to original film elements?
