SOUL
2020, Walt Disney Pictures, 100 min, USA, Dir: Pete Docter, Kemp Powers

What is it that makes you...YOU? Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) is a middle-school band teacher who has a passion for jazz who is offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with one of the greats. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Joe teams up with a precocious soul (voice of Tina Fey) who has never understood the appeal of the human experience, hoping that if he can help her, maybe he can make it back to Earth in time for his big gig.


ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI...
2020, Amazon Studios, 110 min, USA, Dir: Regina King

On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music and activism gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. When underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali, (Eli Goree), defeats heavy weight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall, Clay memorialized the event with three of his friends: Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge). 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.
