Genre: Comedy, Music, Musical. Dir: Richard Lester. Country: UK.
The year is 1964 and four young lads from Liverpool are about to change the world – if only the madcap world will let them out of their hotel room. Richard Lester’s boldly contemporary rock n’ roll comedy unleashes the fledgling Beatles into a maelstrom of screaming fans, paranoid producers, rabid press and troublesome family members. The secret of their survival and success is revealed: an insatiable lust for mischief and a life-affirming addiction to joy.
Length: 87 mins
Cast: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
