In this purely fictional story, Paul McCartney drops by The Dakota to visit John Lennon in 1976. Paul is still on top of the music world, reaching #1 with his new band, Wings. John, however, has retired from public life, choosing to raise his son, Sean. Rumors are rampant that The Beatles are going to reunite to play a concert. Paul, the consummate entertainer, is intrigued by the possibilities. But John, still fighting his inner demons, is content keeping Beatlemania a thing of the past. But even though the two men are still at odds over the band, they rediscover that they still have bonds from the past that will never go away. Written by
'John Lennon' and Paul McCartney actually did spend 24 April 1976 together as portrayed in the movie, but 'Yoko Ono' and Linda McCartney were also present. It was the last time they met. They got along so well that Paul returned the next day to see John. John would not let him in, saying, as he does in the movie, "You can't just be dropping by like it's the good old days." See more »
The movie begins with a message that the meeting it is dramatizing between John and Paul took place in April 1976 but when they got out into Central Park the leaves on the trees are yellow and the fact that there are yellow/brown leaves all over the ground indicate it would actually be late Sept or early Oct.

I absolutely loved this film! I was hesitant to watch it at first because I thought it would be too painful. I remember how hard it was when John was shot. However, watching the "Two of Us" took me back to a happier time when he was still alive and there was hope and possibility. I think that the writer did an amazing job depicting what "might have been." Aidan Quinn was adorable as Paul and met the challenge head on. I was impressed with his accent and mannerisms. Jared Harris is also very talented and was quite believable as John. My favorite parts were the scene in the park and the rooftop scene - which was so poignant. The film left me with both sadness and satisfaction, both of which I feel are appropriate, given the circumstances.
