Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight

Available on iTunes, HBO Max, Hulu
He was one of boxing's all-time greats, but Muhammad Ali's biggest challenge took place far from the ring--in the United States Supreme Court, where the justices debated the outcome of his 1971 conscientious-objector appeal during the Vietnam War. This riveting drama goes behind closed doors as Justice John Harlan II (Christopher Plummer) finds himself at odds with the status quo - and his old friend Chief Justice Warren Burger (Frank Langella) - after his perspective is challenged by his new clerk, Kevin Connolly (Benjamin Walker). This compelling film explores the intricate politics behind these historic decisions in a time of rapid social and cultural transformation in America. Directed by Stephen Frears; written by Shawn Slovo.
