Pupil Tobias is a big Beatles fan. He knows everything about his favourite group. All the pieces of trivia he has collected seem to be pieces of a puzzle which lead to the only possible conclusion: Paul McCartney has died early and was replaced with a double by the band's management. Now Tobias has to communicate his findings. Written by
Awesome...now WHERE can I get a copy of the one-sheet?
Does anyone out there have a copy of the one-sheet for this movie (the poster used to promote it)? I'm an author (Andru Reeve) who wrote about this film in a book and now I would like to own and frame a one-sheet for my office. Will pay big bucks...
Now, on to the movie. "Paul Is Dead" is a coming-of-age tale that revolves uniquely around the famous fable of Beatle Paul McCartney's death. Although this rumor took place in the late 60s, the action in this film is moved forward 11 years to 1980 and a small town in Germany. A young boy, through an amazing concatenation of events, comes to believe that Paul is not only dead, but that he was MURDERED by an Englishman named Billy Shears. And Mr. Shears is right there, in young Tobias's tiny German hamlet! Tobias becomes a sleuth as he tries to figure out what is going on. At the same time, he grows up, passing from the lightheartedness of childhood into the harsh reality of the adult world. The film is both moving and oddly charming. A perfect "10". Can't wait to see this director's first Hollywood effort!
