I thought you'd know what being on top would be like. What is it, John?
It doesn't seem like a game anymore, Eppie. It seems crazy.
All them people, screaming and running after us. I don't know what they want. I mean, does that seem normal to you? The way they're behaving? Half the world thinks we're a bloody joke and the rest of them think we're God! What do you think we are, Brian?

In my Opinion this is one of the better films about the Beatles. I know some arty types prefer Backbeat but I feel that this movie captures the Beatles more accurately. I don't mean everything about the film is accurate but they capture the personality, talent and spirit of four young Liverpool lads who became the Beatles.
Stephen MacKenna is outstanding as John and the other actors do passable impersonations of the others. Brian Jameson is good as Brian Epstein and Nigel Havers is brilliant as George Martin.
On stage they look and act like the Beatles and there is enough music to keep fans happy, remembering that this is the early days before they hit it really big.
So for genuine Beatles fans this is a movie well worth seeing.
