All Is By My Side Andre 3000

Yes, we're continuing to dig into TIFF's great lineup this year and uncovering more images from the movies headed to Ontario, Canada, so sit back and open up your eyeballs....

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, that's hip hop fave Andre 3000 doing his rock 'n roll thing as Jimi Hendrix in "All Is By My Side," the flick tracking the legend's early days. Here's the synopsis: 

Jimmy James, an unknown backup guitarist, left New York City for London, England in 1966. A year later he returned — as Jimi Hendrix. All Is By My Side brings authenticity and poignancy to the story of the man behind the legend, and of the people who loved and inspired him. Starring Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, André Benjamin, Ruth Negga and Adrian Lester.

Keeping on the musical tip is "Can A Song Save Your Life?" from "Once" director John Carney, produced by Judd Apatow and starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley:

Can a Song Save Your Life? finds Gretta (Keira Knightley) alone in New York City after being heartbroken by her musician boyfriend (Adam Levine). She finds laughter and rejuvenation with a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo) who recognizes her musical talent and opens up an entire city of possibility for both of them.

Lastly, let's go a bit period with "The Invisible Woman" with Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens, and Felicity Jones as his mistress. HAWT. 

Nelly (Felicity Jones), a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, go back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes), with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens — famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success — falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens, a brilliant amateur actor and a man more emotionally coherent on the page and on stage than in life. As Nelly becomes Dickens’ muse and the focus of his passion, for both of them secrecy is the price — and for Nelly a life of “invisibility”. Also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander, Joanna Scanlan, Perdita Weeks, Amanda Hale, Tom Burke, John Kavanagh and Michael Marcus.
