First Footage of Outkast's Andre Benjamin as Jimi Hendrix

This is the first clip and footage to be released from the Jimi Hendrix biopic, All Is By My Side. It gives us our first look at Outkast's Andre Benjamin, a.k.a. Andre 3000, as the legendary musician. 

The clip features flirting with Linda Keith, played by Imogen Poots. Keith is the onetime girlfriend of Keith Richards, who inspired songs by both men. The film centers around Hendrix's recording of his Are You Experienced album.

The film was written and directed by 12 Years a Slave screenwriterJohn Ridley. It doesn't yet have a U.S. release date. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and is set to be shown at SXSW. It's gotten a lot of positive buzz, and so far has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so it seems like a movie that could be worth checking out.
