Ali is a 2001 biopic of the life and career of boxer Muhammad Ali, directed by Michael Mann.
Muhammad Ali thrilled the world with his ground-breaking boxing victories in the '60s and '70s.
But the man behind the legend is grappling with a tumultuous romantic life, his deeply held religious beliefs and the pressures of staying on top.
A quick-witted, winning personality and strong friendships with close associates, including renowned newscaster Howard Cosell, help Ali "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee."
But faced with a life-changing conflict outside of the ring, the famously opinionated boxer is forced to rely on the one person he knows the best: himself.
