JIMI: All Is By My Side
OutKast’s André Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in this revealing biopic from writer-director John Ridley ("12 Years A Slave"). Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.
