Did You Win MILES AHEAD On DVD?

Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead hits DVD August 22nd, and we've got three copies to give away to UK readers.







Don Cheadle (Captain America: Civil War, Ocean’s Thirteen) captures the inherent musical brilliance of mercurial jazz genius Miles Davis in Miles Ahead, which arrives on digital platforms on 15th August and on Blu-ray and DVD from 22nd August, 2016, courtesy of Icon Film Distribution. 


It’s 1979 and the world-renowned jazz musician Miles Davis is in a desperate rut. Miles hasn’t appeared publicly for six years and has not picked up a trumpet for three. His complete loss of musical inspiration, addiction to cocaine and alcohol, and chronic pain from a deteriorating hip have rendered him a virtual hermit, locked up in his wrecked Upper-West Side apartment in a deep depression. Despite all this, the record company to which Miles is signed are attempting to claim ownership of a mysterious tape in Miles’ possession, supposedly containing brand new unheard content, and they are prepared to go to great lengths to get their hands on it.


The winners are:

Michael Muyunda, Nottinghamshire
Craig Holton, Southampton
Leza Salmon, London
