Atom User Reviews for One Night in Miami
One of the best movies of 2020. Performances off the charts. Directing is virtually flawless for a movie that pretty much takes place in one location. Must see!
To some extent, One Night in Miami remains high-quality filmed theater. But the conviction and stirring feeling brought to it elevate the material, making this an auspicious feature debut. Here's hoping that King, one of our most consistently excellent screen actors, continues to spread her wings in this direction.
King’s debut makes attempts to widen out the stage play, but there’s no denying the fact that this is an exchange of ideas as opposed to a narrative, or that dialogue is often pitched as monologue. What ideas, though, and what a night.
One Night in Miami shows King to be a filmmaker who’s clearly interested in balancing a variety of literal and figurative textures.
