Miles Ahead

2015 • dir Don Cheadle w/Don Cheadle, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Ewan McGregor, LaKeith Stanfield, Michael Stuhlbarg • 100 min • DCP

Both Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock appear as live performers in this killer bio-pic about one of popular music’s most enigmatic and innovative figures, trumpeter/composer Miles Davis. This impressionistic, time-jumping film is as mercurial and vibrant as the musician himself.

Staff Pick! Billy: “The most gangster movie about Miles ever!”

Showing as an accompanying feature to our premiere of BLUE NOTE RECORDS: BEYOND THE NOTES.

“Miles Ahead riffs on the life of Miles Davis, improvising around the facts available, but somehow still reveals the essence and spirit of the man and his music.”
– Kate Muir, Times (UK)

“This could be Don Cheadle’s finest hour.”
– Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
