Trivia

Much of the film's background information, such as the story of Brian being beaten, robbed and blackmailed after soliciting a man at a men's toilet, is taken directly from the 1983 book "The Love You Make" by Peter Brown and Steven Gaines. See more »

Goofs

In the film, set in April 1963, John and Brian go to see the Ingmar Bergman film "The Silence" (The Silence), which was first released in Sweden in September 1963. See more »

Quotes

John Lennon: The lads are probably having a big party without us.
Brian Epstein: You're not allowed to think about them. Doctor's orders.
John Lennon: Dr. B. Epstein, Certified Faith Healer and Proctologist. What a shitty job that must be. No pun intended.

a rather interesting film
18 March 2003 | by (san francisco califonia) – See all my reviews

The film really tackles a subject that not to many beatle fans think about.The relationship between john lennon and brian epstein.There is a little to much swearing from john,but overall it's not a bad movie.The movie is actually based on a trip that the two of them took in 1963.
