Coming to Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on January 13, 2015 is the acclaimed Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi: All is By My Side. The film, which had a limited U.S. theatrical release in early fall of this year, was written and directed by John Ridley, best known for having won the Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award for 12 Years a Slave (2013). André Benjamin (of the hip hop duo OutKast) won rave reviews for his portrayal of the late rock legend.

The R-rated (for language, including sexual references and some drug content) film will carry an suggest retail price of $24.99 for Blu-ray and $20.99 for DVD.

Rather than attempt to tell the artist’s full life story, Jimi: All is By My Side covers a single year in Hendrix’s life, 1966-1967. The goal, as stated in the film’s press materials, was to present “an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.”
