Being a fan of JAZZ, and being a fan of legendary Musician/Composer/Arranger/Bandleader/Recording Artist MILES DAVIS; Yours Truly CCG is very excited about the forthcoming semi-biopic film based on a portion of the iconic virtuoso's life entitled MILES AHEAD!!!
For MILES AHEAD, Actor DON CHEADLE is both star and director, both portraying MILES DAVIS and directing the film.
Rather than a conventional cradle-to-grave music biopic, Cheadle built the narrative around Davis in 1979, a period of artistic paralysis.
EWAN McGREGOR plays a persistent journalist who intrudes on his privacy, but becomes his reluctant partner in crime when they have to retrieve a missing tape of valuable session music. Like Miles' music, their adventure knows no boundaries, and the film flirts with the surreal.
EMAYATSKY CORENEALDI portrays Dancer FRANCES TAYLOR, a woman he courts and over whom he obsesses. She became his first wife, and; it has often been stated that Frances was his one and only true love.
MILES AHEAD opens Friday, April 1, 2016.
