Storyline

In 1964 a reluctant John Lennon is persuaded by manager Brian Epstein to meet Freddie, the father who abandoned him 17 years earlier, with the press in attendance. The meeting is short and bitter. Three years later Epstein is dead and John invites Freddie to his mansion but again things turn sour, due to Freddie's drinking and insulting Mimi, the aunt who raised John. The Beatles set up Apple records but the press are hostile and Lennon's comment that 'we're more popular than Jesus' doesn't help. Rows with long-suffering wife Cynthia lead to marital breakdown and John's meeting Japanese performance artist Yoko Ono. Family history is repeated as Lennon leaves Cynthia and their son Julian for Ono, by whom he has a second son, Sean. In 1969 John returns his M.B.E. in protest at England's support for the Vietnam War while his stunts with Yoko Ono to promote peace alienate the press. Some months later he disbands the Beatles to the other members' annoyance and, after arguments with Paul ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Where was the 'lovely guy' that Paul knew ?
6 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

John Lennon comes over in this film as overbearing, callous, uncaring, rude, acerbic, immature, self obsessed, in fact its hard to see any redeeming features in the character who stars here. Whilst we (the fans) all know that John could sometimes lean towards the above we also know that he had a very funny, caring and deeply intuitive side as well, I've lost count of the number of times I've heard Paul or Ringo say 'John was a lovely guy'. Well Im sorry but the John portrayed here was anything but. Make your own mind up about how far down the road of character assassination Lennon Naked goes. As far as being factual with the events of this period of Lennon's and The Beatles a lot of the events I have read about before and assume to be fact,although I suspect it only vaguely represents the actual truth, but then, only the people present in the rooms would know for sure. Overall I didn't like it, I thought Eccleston, who although credible, was too old for the part and this distracted from the reality overall. If your at all a Lennon fan, I wouldn't recommend it, way too one dimensional in its approach of portraying John Lennon for me, although you might think I am biased being a fan, I have tried to look at it objectively though, Id be very interested to know what Cynthia thinks of it.
