'Ali' charts the life of the living legend across a decade, starting in 1964 when under the name of Cassius Clay at the young age of 22 he grabs the title of Heavyweight Boxing Champion from Sonny Liston. From there Ali embarks on a rollercoaster relationship with the American people, the establishment and his family and friends as he enters the boxing ring with at times triumphant results, and other times not so victorious. Punctuating his turbulent career is Ali's conversion to Islam, his rise and fall as a respected figure in the black community, his estrangement from the American establishment as he controversially declares 'he ain't got no quarrel with the Viet cong' and his fraught personal life. In overcoming such adversities, Ali emerges as more than a boxer who fought to win more than a championship title; he fought for the right to live by his moral convictions, the respect of people of all colours in all nations and for his belief in the Islamic faith -but most of all he fought to change the world. Will Smith received his first Oscar nomination for this role.
