Danai Gurira Writes A Praising Review About The Film ‘One Night In Miami’ Calling It’s A Masterful Piece Of Art

Zimbabwean-American actress and playwright Danai Jekesai Gurira, best known for her starring role as Michonne in The Walking Dead series, wrote a praising review of the film ‘One Night in Miami‘ on her Instagram account.

Directed by Oscar and Emmy award-winning artist Regina King, the movie brought together the legendary boxer Muhammed Ali, activist Malcolm X, footballer Jim Brown and musician Sam Cooke for a celebratory night.

On Monday, the 42-year-old actress took Instagram to share her opinion with her followers about the film and she was so astonished that she watched it a second time in twenty-four hours. She described the movie as a masterful piece of art which haunted her sleep and nourished her soul.

Danai Gurira explained the storyline of the film was very timely, relevant, and richly realized with the current state of the country and as a black woman she was compelled and convicted by the arguments and conflicts, and as an actor, she was in awe of the craft, nuance and richness of humanity this ensemble achieved.

Here’s the caption:

“I just finished watching One Night in Miami for the second time in twenty-four hours. I rarely watch anything more than once, but this masterful piece of art demanded my attention, filled my dreams, haunted my sleep and nourished my soul.

I am a bit of a history geek, and love great historical fiction, but what Regina, Kemp Powers and this phenomenal ensemble accomplished took the genre to another level.

As a playwright I felt that rich character-driven dramatic tension and deeply appreciated how it was adapted to the screen; as a black woman I was compelled and convicted by the arguments and conflicts, and as an actor, I was in awe of the craft, nuance and richness of humanity this ensemble achieved.

Could a piece of work be more timely, more relevant and more richly realized? That I truly doubt. I just want to say “Thank You” to this astounding team of artists. You have created something indelible and incredible. And to @iamreginaking, woman, you REIGN.”

While almost all the followers who watched it wrote positive comments about the movie, they also said that they will watch it for a second time like Danai Gurira.

A follower said the director should get an Oscar and wrote:

“Leslie Odom Jr deserves an Oscar”

Another follower wrote:

“Masterful indeed. I love everything about this movie.”
