Jimi: All Is By My Side
OutKast’s André Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in this revealing biopic from Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (‘12 Years A Slave’ screenplay).

Featuring a mesmerising central performance, reincarnating Hendrix in stunning detail, this untold story of one of the greatest musicians that ever lived is a must-see for rock fans everywhere.
