Directed by Stephen Frears and written by Shawn Slovo, the film stars Christopher Plummer, Frank Langella, Danny Glover, Ed Begley Jr. and others as the legal figures involved in the case, though Ali appears only on archival footage. The film premiered as a special screening at Cannes earlier this year.
