Great peek into the lives of the Beatles.
2 November 2011 | by (Prescott Az) – See all my reviews

Anyone who is a Beatles fan will enjoy this movie. I smiled all the way through it. From the famous to the not so famous Seth Swirsky compiles a treasure chest of interviews from those who knew or had crossed path with various members of the Beatles. It really humanized John, Paul, George and Ringo for me. Also the humbleness and genuine love towards the Beatles coming from the famous people that Seth interviewed was refreshing in this day of "look at me I'm a self important celebrity". I was amazed at the variety of people that Seth got to speak about the Beatles. The filmmaker obviously did his homework. If you have a film festival in an area where you live and this is playing definitely go see this.
