Andre Benjamin portrays the legendary rocker in the film that chronicles Hendrix’s life from 1966-1967, when he was an unknown backup guitarist playing at New York’s Cheetah Club. It also shows his breakthrough in London and the moment when he became a hit in the U.S. at the Monterey Pop Festival.
Along with Benjamin, the film also stars Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Andrew Buckley, and Ruth Negga. It was written and directed by Oscar winner John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”).
