Storyline

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 jgp3553@yahoo.com

Did You Know?

Trivia

'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."

Goofs

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.

Quotes

John Lennon: There is little difference between the one who bows and the one who is bowed to.
Paul McCartney: Ooh, very "I am the Walrus."

Talking Movie.....
24 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Recently shown on cable tv the movie opens with a disclaimer distancing itself from any co-operation of real life persons; that in itself is an eye catcher. Yet the script and acting from the main characters is superb and I found myself engrossed throughout.Due in no small way to the crisp, thoughtful and interesting dialogue.The film is about a meeting on one day between two real life musical "legends" who formerly composed together then seperated.The film captures the essence of their lives and philosophies, in a story which proffers an explanation for their initial "split". What is so impressive is that the actors give such seemingly realistic portrayals of the characters they play,faults and all, that this viewer at least was left believing I was witnessing a true event in almost every detail. The great skill of this play is that with astute writing and fine acting a movie basically about "two of us" talking can make an excellent picture. Worthy of at least an 8 out of 10.
