I back-ordered this movie because of the clearance price, not entirely sure if I was going to like it or not. The first time I saw the movie, I thought, "What the heck...?"
I watched it again, using earphones, and I was fascinated how subtle the emotions are suggested. The character development is very realistic (thankfully it wasn't all sappy and sweet). The ending was suitable--it ended where there was nothing else to say, and their relationship becomes more in itself.
Unfortunately, Ian Hart didn't do John Lennon a lot of justice... Hart's portrayal was too emotionless, when I always had the impression that Lennon actually knew WHEN to emote in conversation. David Angus is perfect in his role as Brian Epstein.
I recommend this to any Beatle fan who want something different.
