Miles Ahead, written, directed by and starring Don Cheadle as Miles Davis alongside Ewan McGregor and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
All Rolling Stone reporter Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor) wants is an exclusive interview with the jazz legend himself, Miles Davis (Don Cheadle). What he gets instead is a wild and dangerous ride-along with a recording artist living at his edge, rife with shootouts, car-chases, and a tale of lost love to the singer Frances (Emayatzy Corinealdi).
Inspired by events in Miles Davis’s life, Academy Award® Nominee Don Cheadle boldly brings his vision, both in-front-of and behind-the-camera in MILES AHEAD, his directorial debut. A wildly entertaining, impressionistic, no-holds-barred portrait of one of twentieth-century music’s creative geniuses.
Miles Ahead is released in UK cinemas on April 22nd by Icon Film Distribution.
Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture.

Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.
