All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix movie written and directed by screenwriter John Ridley, who just earned an Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, makes its U.S. debut on March 12 at SXSW in Austin. Outkast’s André Benjamin stars as Hendrix in the year 1966, when he was still a struggling guitarist named Jimmy James. Imogen Poots plays groupie Linda Keith, who befriends him and takes him to London, where “Jimi Hendrix” emerged and a year later, broke out in America after his appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival.
